Logan 9-10s win District 2 title


Make it 2-for-2.

Logan’s return to Little League Baseball has been a successful one so far in this summer’s all-star season.

The Logan 9-10-year-old All-Stars brought home the District 2 championship with Friday night’s 13-2 win over Madison at Chapmanville’s Tracy Vickers Field.

Madison was scheduled to play Chapmanville in the runner-up game but no scores or statistics were available.

Logan has now won two straight district all-star titles this summer. Recently, Logan’s 7-8-year-old All-Stars won the District 2 championship at Pineville.

Logan had competed in the Cal Ripken League the last five years but opted to go back and get its Little League Charter this year.

The Logan All-Stars last played in Little League Baseball back in 2009 when the 11-12-year-old All-Star team made it all the way to the semifinal round of the West Virginia State Tournament.
