The All-Star game proved to be a great platform to showcase the talent of the players in the WWBL. The game started with the National Team (Red) gaining an early lead in the first 3 innings (9 to 1 after the third). The American Team (White) then gained momentum over the next 2 innings with the score of 14 to 11 after the fifth. The game progressed and the American Team took a 16 to 14 lead in the top of the 6th inning. The National team battled back and was up by one run (17-16) at the bottom of the 6th. The game ended in the top of the 7th when the National team gained 3 consecutive outs. Both teams showed talent in every position and it was both an offensive and defensive battle right to the end. All the players should be proud of their play; Final Score National: 17, American 16.
Despite the cool weather there was a very nice crowd on hand. The New Richmond Baseball League and Star Prairie were great hosts. Many thanks to all those who made this happen. Thanks to Justin Leverty who helped with the jersey numbering; a few of us help reimburse some of his expense; other teams may want to as well.
The Western Wisconsin Baseball League (WWBL) consists of teams from the communities of Hudson, New Richmond, Somerset, Hammond (Central St. Croix Rec.), River Falls, and Prescott. The WWBL has a 16-game schedule and keeps weekly standings. It also has a mid-season All Star game, and an End of Year tournament that includes all teams in the league.
The Western Wisconsin Baseball League (WWBL) and it's teams are considered to be equal to the "A" level of traveling baseball, which is defined by the traveling associations as: "the intermediate level of play essentially designed to be a developmental league to provide a competitive experience until they are ready to advance to a higher competitive level." However, this league is not a substitute for each communities traveling programs.
Games are played at various community fields during the week.
