RICHMOND (WTVR) – The Tuckahoe American League All Stars have won their state title and will represent Virginia in the Southeast Regionals held in Warner Robins, Georgia.
Tuckahoe went 6-0 in the state tournament, winning 5 games by shutout and giving up just three runs total, all in the title game. They have also not committed an error in their last 198 outs.
Head coach John Carpin spoke of the challenge of balancing focus and determination to win with keeping 12-year old emotions in check and reminding his players that baseball is a game, meant to be fun.
By unofficial count, this is the 5th team from Tuckahoe that has a chance to go to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA. They begin play against Tennessee on Friday in pool play.
