On the heels of a District 6 title, the Scarborough 10-11 Little League team captured the state championship in Lincolnville last week.
Scarborough defeated Bangor (3-0), Belfast (9-2), York (8-5) and Dirigo (11-1) to take the crown. This group of boys also won the 2010 state title as 9-10 year olds.
“This team’s success is due not just to strong baseball skills, but the boys’ respect and support for one another,” manager Neal Pratt said. “They consider themselves brothers on and off the field. Watching three or four of them at a time trying to pick up a player who made a mistake is very satisfying. This is quite a team.”
