July 11, 2007 - Knightstown’s 14-year-old Babe Ruth All-Star team defeated the Knightstown 13-year-old team 16-5 during a district tournament held here last weekend.
The 14-year-olds exploded for eight runs in the first inning and cruised to the win due to the 10-run rule. Robert Parrish, Tyler Zachary, Cole Williams, Matt Cecil, Derek Spong, James Haskett and Michael Abrams all scored in the opening frame. The winners batted around in the first, and Parrish actually scored two runs in that inning.
