The boys of Tri-City Little League ended their successful 2018 season with a loss to Conococheague on July 25.

HAGERSTOWN – Tri-City Little League’s 11-12 boys baseball team wrapped up their 2018 campaign on July 25, when the North Dorchester squad lost to Conococheague, 11-1, ending their run for a state title. The team had already won the District 6 championship.

A statement from league leaders said, “These boys had an amazing season and we hate to see it come to an end. Great job to all these boys and a great job to their coaches. You had the entire Tri-City community cheering you on.”

For some teams, taking a group of middle-school aged children on the road might be a risky proposition – shenanigans might give coaches a headache or a county’s reputation a black eye. But not so for the athletes from North Dorchester.

Craig O’Connor is one of the leaders of tournament hosts Federal Little League. In a post on social media, he wrote, “It was our honor to host your boys and their families at our facility this week. Congrats on making it this far. Your team represented the league and your community extremely well. Come back to visit Hagerstown soon.”

“These boys have no reason to put their heads down,” Justin Felgenhouer wrote. “At the end of the day, they are district champions and they played like it.”

Tri-City Little League was founded in 1952, and serves the children of North Dorchester with boys’ and girls’ age divisions in baseball and softball. For information, call 443-747-1482, or visit www.tricityll.com.
