Little League all-stars begin

The 2013 baseball and softball all-star season got off to a fine start Monday as the Warren Girls Majors (11-12) delivered a 10-2 victory over Bradford, at Hawbaker Field. The team returns to action Wednesday when it visits Smethport-Mount Jewett in a 6 p.m. winner’s bracket contest.

The Girls Majors are just one of several Warren Little League all-star teams that will begin play in the coming weeks. The Warren Girls Minors (9-10) open postseason play on Thursday, June 27, when they host Bradford at Hawbaker Field. The Warren Girls Juniors (13-14) will be possibly the final all-star team to take the field, opening July 3 against Saint Marys.

The Boys Minors (9-10) is the only bracket in 2013 to feature a pair of Warren clubs – the Americans and the Nationals. The Warren Americans start June 27 against Smethport-Mount Jewett. The Nats start two days later against the winner of June 27’s game between Kane and Bradford.

The Boys Majors (11-12) and Boys Juniors (13-14) both open against Smethport-Mount Jewett teams. The Majors start Monday while the Juniors kick things off on June 29.

No brackets have been released for Warren’s 10-11 boys all-star team.
