As the last Little League baseball games are set to be played this Thursday, other leagues are just getting underway at Idle Hour Park in Springfield.
The 11-12-year-old Reds captured the league championship with wins over the Red Sox and Mets last week, finishing with an 8-2 record over the second-place Mets, who finished 5-5.
Things are still up for grabs in the 9-10-year-old league, where the Reds hold a one-game lead over the Cubs with two games remaining on each team’s schedule.
