Going back to the World Series

C-W Babe Ruth baseball players get a second chance in Tennessee

Seven lucky Camas-Washougal Babe Ruth baseball players are going back to the World Series.

Kolby Broadbent, Jackson Gibbs, Beau Kearsey, Logan Kearsey, Gideon Malychewski, Drew Ott and Evan Stott led Camas-Washougal to a 12-2 victory against Calgary, Canada, in the 13- to 15-year-old Pacific Northwest Regional Babe Ruth championship game Saturday, at Rister Stadium in Kelso.

Other players on the Camas-Washougal team are Lucas Barbier, Bradley Carter, Clint French, Isaac Hanley, Skylar Kelsey, Josh Mansur, Taylor Shega and Braden Zook. Andrew Ott is the manager, and Bob Gibbs and Joel Shega are the coaches.

Calgary defeated Camas-Washougal 5-4 in the second round of pool play. It was sweet revenge for the C-W boys Saturday, as they 10-runned the Canadians in six innings.

Camas-Washougal knocked off tournament host Kelso 6-1 in the semifinals Saturday morning. The C-W boys also beat Glacier, Montana, 12-3, Riverton, Wyoming, 8-1, and Kalama-Woodland-Ridgefield-La Center 6-1, in pool play.
