LCYBL Machine Pitch All-Stars win District 5 championship
Published 12:00 am Wednesday, June 27, 2018
The Lunenburg County Youth Baseball League (LCYBL) All-Stars had not faced major adversity in the 2018 Dixie Youth Baseball Machine Pitch All-Star District 5 Tournament until Tuesday night when they fell behind 5-0 early and then trailed 7-3 after 2.5 innings against the Blackstone All-Star team in the championship round. But they responded like champions, reeling off the maximum allowable total of seven runs in the third inning, adding four more in the fourth and ultimately claiming the district title with an 18-7 victory.
The LCYBL All-Stars will return to action in the 2018 Dixie Youth Baseball Machine Pitch All-Star State Tournament on July 6 in South Hill against the Clarksville All-Star team.
