Pittsfield Babe Ruth 13s Headed to New England Regional

Community submissionPrint Story | Email Story
PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- One year after the Pittsfield American Little League All-Stars came within a game of going to Williamsport, most of the players from that group are poised to make another run -- this time as Babe Ruth 13-year-old All-Stars.
 
The Pittsfield 13s next week head to Stamford, Conn., for the New England Regional and a shot at the Babe Ruth World Series later this summer.
 
To prepare, the team cruised through a travel schedule in the Eastern New York Baseball League, going 10-1 and outscoring opponents 104-22 along the way.
 
Evan Blake leads the Pittsfield 13s with an eye-popping .800 batting average and five home runs. He has 20 hits and 24 RBIs this summer.
 
Nick Brindle collected 13 hits and 11 RBIs for a .448 average, and Anthonio Scalise is batting .417 with nine RBIs.
 
Three other members of the team are hitting .300 or better: Owen Salvatore (.318), Christian Salzarulo (.300) and Walker Abdallah (.333).
 
Blake has been the ace of the pitching staff, compiling a 5-0 record. Salzarulo (2-0), Cam Sime (2-0) and Brayden Gutzmer (1-0) also are undefeated.
 
The PIttsfield Babe Ruth 13s include 10 players from last year’s state champion Pittsfield AL squad, four players from the Pittsfield National League and one player from Hancock.
