Alabama wins Babe Ruth World Series in Ephrata

EPHRATA – The Alabama Rawdogs continued their dominance on Saturday, taking home the title in the 16-18U Babe Ruth World Series in Ephrata. Alabama went undefeated throughout the tournament, outscoring opponents by 60 runs over the six games played. “Our goal was to get here and win it, and obviously perform well,” Rawdogs manager Tony Hendrix said. “When you got a team like this, our guys are top to bottom swinging.” The Rawdogs began pool play with three consecutive wins by double-digit runs before defeating the Southeast Tropics 4-2 in the final match of pool play. After earning the top seed in the American Division, Alabama had a first-round bye in bracket play. “I always tell our guys, it’s hard to win when you first get here,” Hendrix said of his past managing experience in the World Series. “Fortunately, we’ve been to several (World Series), and I think experience in the dugout - just not getting caught up in the World Series and the name of it - goes a long way for our team.”
