Baseball club begins Series bid Saturday

The Sonora Baseball Club begins its bid Saturday in the 32nd annual U.S. Amateur Baseball Association World Series.

The team of 11- and 12-year-olds from Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties will play at 11:30 a.m. at Sherwood High School in suburban Portland, Ore., against an opponent to be named. The club will play another game Saturday, two more Sunday and another next Monday before the elimination portion of the tournament begins Wednesday, Aug. 8.

Teams from all over the United States, plus Canada and Puerto Rico, are entered. The Sonora club is believed to be the first from this area to receive an invitation to the Series.

Tuolumne County players Willie Dutra, Travis Workman, Devin Goodman, Ryles Richards, Spencer Stobaugh, Josh Schultz, Alex Stewart, Khalin Cottingham and Ben Gorgas are joined on the roster by Calaveras County players Marshall Garcia, Kevin Thomas and Kason Hancock.

Rich Stewart is the manager and Jim Schultz and Rick Workman are the coaches.

Donations are still being sought and can be sent to the club at P.O. Box 3050, Sonora. Also, donors can call Stewart at 533-9507 or Schultz at 532-7250.

The outpouring of support from the community has been great so far, Schultz said. Its really nice to see the local merchants and baseball fans get behind this group of kids.
