LEBANON - With solid pitching and defense and good hitting, Lebanon's Babe Ruth team is poised to once again end up as Southern York Babe Ruth League champions.

There's only four more games and manager Mike Chambers said over the weekend that if they win two of those they'll lock it up.

"I'm not telling the kids that, though," he joked on Sunday.

In fact, the team could go undefeated as it hopes to power its way to its fourth title in six years.

The club's pitching is led by 15-year-olds Matty Chambers, the manager's son; and Baley Coulle, whose dad, Tom Coulle, is co-manager.

Most of the middle-relief work, meanwhile, goes to 14-year-old Ben Thompson.

At the plate, the club is led by 15-year-old Luke Carlock batting .421 and 13-year-old David Hamme batting .361.

Testifying to their defense and pitching, the club has scored 113 runs so far this season compared, while allowing just 35 from its opponents.

Their next home game is Monday against South Berwick.

Lebanon Babe Ruth plays its games at the field at the corner of Lower Cross and Center roads.
