The youngest boys of summer picked up a championship win over the weekend.
After defeating host team Bourne 7-6 in the finals of the Bourne Tournament, the travel under-8 baseball team earned the top spot in the tournament and the hardware to go alone with it. On Saturday the team played three games, defeating Barnstable 19-11, taking a close 10-9 loss to Wareham and falling to Bourne 11-1. With two wins under their belt, the under-8s bounced back against Wareham in the semifinal game on Sunday, taking a 14-11 win before rallying against Bourne in the championship game.
