The Chelan Babe Ruth Baseball Team has just completed its 2008 season in the Okanogan Valley Babe Ruth League with a 7-7 record. The league included boys from 13 to 15 years old. “Our team was very young this year, but they improved a great deal through the season,” said Coach Jim Burbery.
On Friday and Saturday, June 13 and 14, the team competed in a league tournament in Omak where they went 1-2 including “a couple of very exciting games against Brewster and Grand Coulee.”
This year’s team transportation was sponsored by Wade Miller of Miller Auto Sales. “We appreciate his support and would like to send a big thank you that way,” said Burbery.
