The Tribe won the first game, 10-0, over the Chesapeake Bucs and won their second game, 16-0, over the Blue & Gold on Saturday. Sunday’s baseball was a washout from the rain, but the Tribe was declared the champions for scoring 26 runs (the most in the tournament) and giving up no runs.

The bats were on fire, spraying more than 20 hits in two games, including three homeruns. The bats were complemented with excellent pitching and fielding. The team is made up of mostly Lower Sussex and Georgetown Little League baseball players, with some players from Millsboro sprinkled in.
