Freeport youth baseball team wins national championship
LENEXA, KS (WREX) -
Some local boys make good.
The Freeport Stix — a 14 and under baseball team — completed a magical season Wednesday morning by winning the USSSA National Championship in Lenexa, KS.
The Stix defeated the Wizards of Russellville, MO 3-0 in the championship game. It was the second straight game between the two teams, as the Stix defeated the Wizards 7-5 in the semifinal game Tuesday.
Freeport's entry never lost in the tournament, and ends the season 47-5 on the year. The team also ended the tournament ranked the same way it began: ranked No. 1 in the country.
