 10-Year-Old All-Star Boys 4th at Centerville Tourney

August 6, 2008 - Knightstown’s boys 10-and-under little league all-star baseball team finished fourth in an 11-team tournament at Centerville over the weekend. The Knightstown all-stars defeated two different teams from Hagerstown, but lost to Williamsburg and Connersville in the double-elimination affair.

In the first game of the tournament, Knightstown had seven different players score in a 12-1 win over the Hagerstown Stealers. Knightstown scored six runs in the first inning and added six more in the third to account for all of the offense in a game shortened to five innings due to the 10-run rule.

The first five players reached base and scored in the first inning. Spencer Mattix cracked a first inning single that scored Drake Peggs and Travis Isaacs. Mattix, Jacob Bearhope and Logan Whitaker all plated runs on singles by Dalton Engle and Tyler Burton.

Peggs, Isaacs, Bearhope, Whitaker, Luke Chapple and Dalton all scored in the third inning and that’s all the offense Knightstown would need.

Engle went 2-for-2 with two runs scored, slapping a single and a double. He also had four RBIs. Peggs, Mattix, Bearhope, Whitaker, Chapple, Tyler Burton, Adam Bundy, Max Rhinehart and Brock Harding all hit safely.


The Knightstown all-stars lost in the second game of the tournament to Williamsburg, 11-5.

Isaacs had a pair of singles, scored a run and drove in another to pace the offensive attack. Peggs slammed a double and scored once. Rhinehart, Chapple, Whitaker and Mattix also had hits, while Harding and Bundy both plated runs.


The Knightstown boys picked up a huge win over the top Hagerstown all-star team, taking a 9-5 win on the strength of a five-run fourth inning.

Mattix, Whitaker and Chapple all had two hits, including a three-bagger from Whitaker and a double by Mattix. Peggs singled and scored twice, while Burton had a base hit and plated a run during the fourth-inning rally. Isaacs scored two times in the game and Bundy reached base twice, scoring one run.


Playing Connersville for third place, Knightstown managed just hit and went down 12-3, finishing in fourth place in the tournament.

Peggs had the lone hit off of Connersville pitching, leading off the game with a single. He would later score. Bearhope and Chapple reached on an error and fielder’s choice, respectively, and later scored runs.
