…but this time, the Powers that Be have seen to it that DC is a state (for competitive purposes anyway) and our Capitol Hill Little Leaguers are going to Rhode Island, to represent DC in the Eastern Tournament! Make sure you read the Capitol Hill Little League write-up here so you can get game highlights.
The tournament starts August 6 and we hope the kids do really well. Although the games will not be broadcast, there will hopefully be a livestream set up and we will be sure to share it on here. Yesterday at Payne Field, the 2022 team met their winning counterpart from ten years ago. Read more about the 2012 kiddos here, written by the first baseman’s mom. The teams had a meeting, photo-op and played four innings on a beautiful, humid, breezy evening. Here are a few photos from practice, made by yours truly with wanton disregard of the flying projectiles all around me.
If you want to support CHLL on their trip to Rhode Island, you can donate via PayPal here. Congratulations to everyone! Hope seeing these photos can dull the pain of today’s Juan Soto and Josh Bell news.
