In the 11-and-12-year-old baseball division, it was Batesville Dentistry (Dr. Hodge) capturing the championship with a 13-8 victory over JV Systems.
Batesville Dentistry, who advanced to the title game with a 15-0 win over GreenPoint Ag earlier in the day, got a double and two singles from Janario Humphery and a pair of singles from Ethan Payton to garner the victory.
Mitch Mitchell and Ridge Aldison scored three runs each while Humphery and Payton crossed the plate twice. Makenzie Cook drove in a run with an RBI triple as part of a six-run fourth inning outburst for Batesville Dentistry.
