Tough Loss for Auburn

Tough loss last night for Auburn in the Little League World Series. I was watching the game on television in a Pittsburgh sports bar before catching my plane. I was pumped when the boys from Washington took a 5-3 lead in the 5th inning. I just red the results of the Texas comeback win this morning on ESPN.

Great year and effort for the kids from the Northwest. It’s exciting to see a local team to a national stage. Gets me excited for Kitsap County’s own Babe Ruth 13-year old World Series in 2012. Some of the Little Leaguers you will see on ESPN next year may very well be playing in our tournament.

Planning is now going full steam ahead for the 2012 Babe Ruth World Series. I am excited to be on the board as Director of Public Relations and we can use all the help we can get. Follow the progress on our Facebook page.

I just attended a presentation by North Kitsap Babe Ruth on the 2012 Babe Ruth World Series. The terrific news is that we have been approved (we meaning the Kitsap Peninsula). The next step is the fundraising portion and that effort is now wll underway.

Russ Barker and Brent Stenman are the leaders of what will turn into a community effort to bring the Babe Ruth World Series to Kitsap County. The event will bring in 10 teams from across the country and great attention to our area. They are in need of a lot of volunteers in addition to money. Areas such as public relations, fundraising, event management, housing players, and transportation are just some of the areas of need.

If you’d like to get involved, I encourage you to contact either Russ Barker at (206) 396-1726 ( or Brent Stenman at (425) 299–8467 (

You will be hearing more form me on this subject. I coached at the Little League level for may years, and both my daughters played at North Kitsap Little League. This is a tremendous opportunity to jump on board and support youth sports and our community.
