(Riverton, Wyo.) – Riverton’s Babe Ruth Baseball teams made a clean sweep of the state tournaments this year with both the 13-14 year old team and the 15-year-old All Stars winning their respective state championships. The 15-year-old All Stars got their ride on a Riverton Fire Truck through town on Monday evening.
The latest victor was the 15-year-old All Stars, who raced to the District title in Worland and then advanced to the state semi finals in Green River with convincing wins including a 12-0 romp over Rock Springs, a 13-2 pasting of Douglas and a 12-2 decision over Wheatland. In the semis, Riverton topped Torrington 14 to 9 and in the finals, beat Douglas for the second time in the tournament by nearly the same score, 12-2.
Riverton now travels to Baker City, Oregon for the Pacific Northwest Regional August 4-10th.
Donations are now being accepted to help fund the team’s trip to Oregon. Send contributions to Riverton Babe Ruth, P.O. Box 1386, Riverton, WY 82501.
