The Cubs, the AAA division team in the Mason District Little League had a great season, with five wins, one loss, and one tie. Unfortunately, they lost the championship, 9-10, in a spirited game against the Pirates at Mason District Park June 10.
The “Cubbies” are ages 9-11, and most of them attend Columbia, Parklawn, or Sleepy Hollow elementary schools. The team manager is Ryan Aiken and the coaches are Eric Hotmire and Tim Woodruff.

“It was simply a fantastic season,” says Woodruff. “The boys learned some great fundamental baseball skills and, perhaps more important, some vital life lessons about effort, teamwork, and sportsmanship. They were simply a fantastic group of boys.”
