The Thurmont Little League 9-10 All Star Team went 8-0, outscoring their opponents 104-19, to win the Maryland District 2 and Maryland State Championships. With the State Championship, they will be moving on to represent our communities, Maryland District 2, and the State of Maryland in the 9-10 Little League Eastern Regional in Cranston, Rhode Island, from August 8 through August 14, 2015. Each year, over eighty Little Leagues from across the state of Maryland compete to call themselves State Champion. In winning the State Championship, Thurmont beat South Caroline 10-2, Berlin 18-7, Marlboro 16-2, and Conococheague 17-5. With this honor comes a great cost to their families to provide the team a chance to compete at the Eastern Regional Tournament. As a result, Thurmont Little League is looking to raise $15,000 to help fund the expenses of the team as they represent the State of Maryland. All donations will go directly to the Thurmont 9-10 All Star team to offset the cost of competition and travel. Donations can be made by going to their website at www.TLLbaseball.com and clicking on the link to donate. These ball players greatly appreciate your donations by Tuesday August 4.
Please visit Thurmont Little League’s Facebook page for information and updates on the team’s status during the tournament.
The league would like to thank you for giving these talented boys the opportunity to further represent our great communities and the State of Maryland.
