Bellevue beckons the West Seattle Major age 10-12 Little League baseball all-star team after it routed Renton by a 20-3 score in the District 7 championship Friday.
The Westsiders will journey to the Eastside city for the state tournament at the Hidden Valley complex, jumping into the fray on the second day of action with a 12 p.m. game Sunday, July 24.
"I think we could do fairly well at state," said West Seattle manager Corey Helmstetler. "I'm excited. I feel great. We're representing District 7 at state for the third year in a row."
Basically the same crew has now won the District 7 title in their respective age groups the past three years.
"It's the same players except for three new ones," said Helmstetler.
The West Seattle charter has also won the past three years at the Majors level, taking second two years ago as the current group finished fourth at age 9-10.
"This year we'll see what happens," said Helmstetler.More ›
