Front Royal Little League’s 8-9-10 All Stars won the Virginia District 3 championship last night in Elkton where they took down Bridgewater 1-0.

Hunter Seal had a dominant performance on the mound with eight strikeouts and Miles Henry scored the game winning run on a wild pitch.

The team dominated pool play averaging over 20 runs per game with five mercy rule victories.

They will now head to the Virginia State Tournament in Abingdon but are in need of funding to help support the trip.

Manager Jesse Henry and the team will attend the Front Royal Cardinals game on Monday night before the fireworks and will be accepting donations.

A Venmo account has also been established to receive donations, @OnTheWaytoStates.

Light pole falls on Bridgeforth Field

As a result of the storms on Wednesday, a wooden light pole fell onto a fence at the newly renovated Bridgeforth Field.

The pole fell on the third base side of the field and missed the batting cages that were a part of those renovations.

The issue forced the Royals to swap Thursday’s home game and a future home game with the Purcellville Cannons.

Saturday’s game against the Front Royal Cardinals was moved up from 7 pm to 5 pm.

All future home games expected to start at an earlier time until the light pole is fixed.
