Wabash Dominates Wood Bat Tourney

The Wabash Little League moved to the Field of Dreams in 2000, then became the permanent home for the 11&12 wood bat tourney, adding the 9&10 age group six years ago.

During the six year span that the 9&10 year olds have been in the tourney, no program has ever had four teams in the championship game, until this year that is.

After multiple delays through the week because of rain, the two championship games were played Thursday, with Wabash having two teams in each age group playing for the title.
