KMC LL softballers miss out on Series berth
Published: July 14, 2012
The Kaiserslautern Military Community All-Stars 11-12-year-old softball team dropped their third straight game Friday at the Little League Baseball’s European Little League Softball Regional tournament, 14-8 to Italy-champion Emilia. The loss eliminated KMC from contention for a berth at next month’s Little League Softball World Series at Portland, Ore.
No details about the game were available as late as Saturday morning. The KMC girls were to play the Netherlands on Saturday afternoon in their final game at the Milan suburb of Bollatte, Italy. Emilia, at 3-0, was to play the Netherlands in Saturday’s late game, then play the Dutch team again in Sunday morning’s title game. That winner advances to the Little League Softball World Series.
