San Benito Babe Ruth was well represented in all-star play over the past couple of weeks, with two of its four teams winning championships and another advancing to regionals by virtue of a runner-up finish.

The 14- and 15-year-old all-star teams each won their districts, while the 16-18-year-old Senior Babe Ruth team reaching the championship game before falling 5-1 to Stanislaus. The senior team, made up entirely of current or former San Benito High School players, will still advance to the regional tournament in Modesto by virtue of its second-place finish in the tournament held at Veteran's Memorial Park in Hollister.

The San Benito Babe Ruth 13-year-olds lost their elimination game in the state tournament on July 13, the same day the 15-year-old squad won its tournament to advance to the next round. The 14's beat Hanford on July 16 to earn a trip to the regional tournament in Surprise, Ariz.
