Sturgeon Bay’s top finishing Babe Ruth Baseball team in the state tournament played throughout the last five days was the local 12 year old team. Their second place finish earned them a spot in the Ohio Valley Regional Tournament held in Indiana.
The team got into the championship game of the double elimination tournament with timely hitting, great pitching and an impressive team attitude. Sturgeon Bay topped Stevens Point 8-4 in the semi-final. Mitch Jackson earned the win on the mound. He also joined teammates Nathan Stenzel, Tanner DeGrave and Trent Ehlers on the list of players with multi-hit games in the semi-final. Carson Talbert added a two RBI double in the win.
Sturgeon Bay lost to the Green Bay Sluggers 13-1 in the championship game.
The 12 year olds will be fundraising for their regional trip to Indiana.
