After an encouraging opening-day victory, the Kaiserslautern Military Community Junior League baseball team was eliminated from the postseason Friday with its second loss in as many games.
The KMC team, ages 13-15, fell to the United Kingdom 8-7 on Thursday, then to Belarus 4-0 on Friday. Despite Tuesday’s opening win over Romania, the losses prevented KMC from advancing out of pool play in the 12-team regional tournament at Kutno, Poland. The regional champion, to be crowned Tuesday, will advance to the Junior League World Series set for Aug. 11-17 at Taylor, Mich.
The KMC Little League team, ages 11-12, begins its run at a return trip to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa., on July 13 at Kutno. Regional softball play gets started in Bollate and Caronno, Italy, on July 10.
