I wanted to share this email with you so that you too can wish these kids a whole lot of luck.
In the past 2 weeks, 2 teams from East Boise Youth Baseball have qualified to play in the World Series. The 12 year olds are going to the Cal Ripken World Series in Wilson, North Carolina and the 13 year olds are going to the Babe Ruth World Series in Levelland, Texas.
The 12 year olds have their last practice tonight at Simplot Fields before they fly out Wednesday morning. The coach is Wes Lucas.
The 13 year olds do not leave until the 18th. Their coach is Marcus Maltby.
Our sports reporter Zack Wolken is going to do a story on these kids. He'll help document their once in a lifetime event.
Check out that coverage this week on KTVB.
In the meantime, go get em' East Boise!
