Delco Team Wins the Babe Ruth World Series

Broomall-Newtown with the 13-15 age division against Lumber River, N.C.

Champs!

The Delco Daily Times reports:

Broomall-Newtown capitalized on 11 walks, seven errors, three wild pitches and one hit batter to win the Babe Ruth 13-15 World Series title with a 12-3 romp over Lumber River, N.C., Thursday night at Story Field in Longview, Wash.

It’s the second World Series title in a week for the organization. Broomall-Newtown won the 13 Prep crown last Friday in Glen Allen, Va. The organization has scheduled a parade for Sunday afternoon to honor both teams and the historic accomplishment.


Scott Hahn pitched a complete game and was named the Most Outstanding Player of the tournament. Cameron Mathes, Corey Woodcock, Kevin Downs, and Tony Gallo were additionally named to the All-World Series team. Pitcher Vince Greco was named to the tournament's All-Defensive team.

The best part of Thursday's game — other than winning a championship — is that Broomall-Newtown had lost to Lumber River earlier in the tournament, during pool play.

Babe Ruth is for players outside the Little League age range. the 13 Prep division is for 13-year-olds. The 13-15 division is likewise named for the age of players allowed in the games.
