Future bright for local Babe Ruth ball clubs

Both teams, 13U and 15U, combined for a 22-1 record this season

July 6, 2019 — This year’s summer Babe Ruth Baseball Program was, well... a hit. Both teams, 13U and 15U, combined for a 22-1 record this season, with the 13U team going 11-1, and the 15U team finishing undefeated with an 11-0 record.

As the summer continues on so, so will 13 players from Florence who made the South Coast All-Star Teams — with four players on the 13U team, three players on the 14U team and six players on the 15U team.

Coaches Dan Rankin and Derek Wells will be coaching the 15 U All-Star Team in the State Tournament, which will be played July 12-14 at Clyde Allen Field in North Bend.

“Come support our local players at the tournament,” said Wells.

If they win, they will move on to the regional tournament July 21-27.

“Both teams were exceptional this year and should bring a lot of excitement and wins over the years to come,” Wells added. “I know the season just got over but I am ready for next year!”

Wells gave a special thanks to Coach Rankin, as well as Henry and Riley Rankin, who made sure the field and scoreboard were ready to go for each home game.
