In their opening game, the All-Stars shutout Downers Grove (Illinois) 9-0 on Thursday. Jacob DeMeyer pitched the entire game, and earned the shutout. DeMeyer also only gave up three hits in the entire ballgame.

The Northwoods team had their first tough loss on Thursday night. It came in their second game of the day when they fell to New Castle (Indiana) 10-3. Despite the loss, the All-Stars came back for a strong showing on Saturday.

Taking on South Lexington (Kentucky), they were able to squeeze by with a 5-3 win. Earning the win on the mound was Josh Meier, who pitched all seven innings. The All-Stars then defeated Henderson, Co. (Kentucky) in a convincing 10-4 game which placed them in the quarterfinals.

In their game against Henderson, the All-Stars had a strong showing at the plate. Jacob DeMeyer had one hit and one walk, and also had two stolen bases. Brad Sowinski finished with two hits, as well as two walks. Tait Spencer had two hits along with one walk. Bradley Comer finished with two hits.

Brad Quade, Alec Modrow, Easton Senoraske, and Eli Wurl also all added one hit in the victory. Jason Brewer and Quade also collected walks.

In their toughest loss of the tournament came in the quarterfinals when the All-Stars fell to Paris (Illinois) in a heartbreaker that went into extra innings. After regulation seven innings of play, the teams were tied at 2-2. It was a defensive and pitching battle that extended into nine innings of play. Paris went on to earn the win with a walk-off home run. The loss also knocked the All-Stars out of the tournament.

It was an entire team effort with players from Rhinelander, Eagle River, and Tomahawk working together that got them as far as they did. Although it was hard loss, the kids had an opportunity of a lifetime; to play in the Ohio Valley Regional against the best of the best.

The Northwoods Babe Ruth League finally earned a state title, after going 60 years without one under their belts. On Tuesday the 15-year All-Star team won against Green Bay 10-5 in the double elimination tournament in Dodgeville to earn the championship.

Throughout the tournament the team played solid baseball in all areas including pitching, defense, and hitting. How well they played together was truly a testament of their success.

The All-Star team is a mix of the best players from the league, including six players from Rhinelander; Jacob DeMeyer, Bradley Comer, Brad Quade, Tait Spencer, Alec Modrow, and Easton Senoraske. Four of the players are from Eagle River; Jason Brewer, Zach Ciran, Josh Meier, and Brad Sowinski. And rounding out the rest of the team are two players from Tomahawk; William Russell and Eli Wrul.

Despite a team composed of close rivals, they were able to work together and get the job done at the end of the day. The All-Stars started the tournament Saturday with a monstrous victory over Dodgeville; 22-2.

They went on to have another impressive 11-1 over Stevens Point on Sunday. They followed that up with by shutting out Green Bay 5-0 on Monday, and secured a spot in the championship game.

Going into the championship game, the All-Stars already clinched the title, but would have to face Green Bay one more time on Tuesday. They pulled through with a 10-5 win.

With earning the title, the Babe Ruth All-Stars will be competing in the Ohio Valley Regional in Eau Claire July 22-26. Not only is playing in and winning the state tournament an incredible feat for the team, but is an opportunity which many players never will get to move on in the OVR and chance at national World Series.

Last season the All-Stars made it to the Ohio Valley Regionals after taking second place at state, but that is where their journey ended. The All-Stars will be facing some of the best in the region including teams from Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, West Virginia, Ohio, and Illinois. Although the competition is fierce and nerves are high, the team has high ambitions and will keep digging their way closer to a trip of a lifetime.

The All-Stars got off to an early start Thursday in the tournament and earned a 9-0 victory over Downers Grove. More details were not yet provided. They will be facing Castle Thursday night and South Lexington on Friday. If all goes well, the 2015 All-Stars would advance to the Babe Ruth 13-15 World Series on August 13th. The World Series will be held in Lawrenceberg, Tennessee.
