The Logan County Little League’s run in the Little League World Series ended today with a 12-3 loss to the New England champions from Peabody, Mass. The Russellville team lost each of its three games at the World Series and fell victim to the “10-Run Rule” twice. Logan County did score in today’s game to avoid being shutout of the tournament, and completed all six innings.
As ESPN highlighted numerous times, the Logan County team’s achievement of just making the World Series against teams with much larger populations to draw from was noteworthy. Playing in front of crowds bigger than their home towns, the Logan County Little Leaguers represented themselves and the state well.
