Youngstown 17, Palo Alto 14s 10
Date of competition: Thursday, August 21, 2008
The season has finally come to an end for the Palo Alto Babe Ruth 14-year-old all-star baseball team, which was shown the door at the World Series following a 17-10 loss to Youngstown (Ohio) on Thursday at Adams Field in Quincy, Mass. Palo Alto earned a berth into the single-elimination portion of the tournament by going 3-1 in pool play, losing only to Tallahassee. Palo Alto scored enough runs and had enough hits (14) against Youngstown, but gave up a 17 hits and committed four errors in the season-ending loss. Palo Alto finished its season having advanced further than any other youth baseball team from the community, reaching the World Series for the first time in the 50-year history of Palo Alto Babe Ruth baseball.
