Local youth ball teams returning to state

The Columbian

After a year of no local Little League and subsequently no tournament action, youth baseball and softball teams in Clark County and elsewhere are geared up for some tournament play.

Clark County is represented by District 4 and 6, though not all age groups had teams in those districts. Here’s the rundown:

MAJOR BASEBALL (ages 10-12) — Camas Little League won the District 4 All-Star tournament over th weekend, beating Cascade 12-1 to earn a trip to the state tournament at Hartman Park in Redmond beginning Saturday. Hazel Dell will be representing District 6, having beat Salmon Creek for the district title last week.

The winner of the state tournament moves on to the Pacific Northwest Region at San Bernardino, Calif., in August for a chance to go to the Little League World Series at Williamsport, Pa. The World Series was canceled last year due to the pandemic.

MAJOR SOFTBALL — State started on Saturday at Abrams Park in Ridgefield and runs through Wednesday or Thursday depending on Wednesday’s results. Camas is the District 4 champion in the tournament, and Ridgefield is representing District 6.

Camas was 1-1 going into Monday’s loser-out game, while Ridgefield went 0-2 and was eliminated.

8-10 BASEBALL — Fort Vancouver Little League is hosting the District 4 tournament beginning Tuesday. The District 6 tournament is at Luke Jensen Sports Park and runs through Wednesday or possibly Thursday depending on the Wednesday results. Winners advance to state beginning July 24 at Fort Borst Park in Centralia.
