Greene County splits first two games in 2022 Cal Ripken World Series
JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - A Region 8 baseball team is on an international stage this weekend.
The Greene County Lumberjacks (35-4-1) are in the field for the Cal Ripken World Series. They worked out Monday night at Joe Mack Campbell Park. They won the Southwest Regional last year and have racked up more hardware this year. The Lumberjacks won the Cal Ripken state title and the USSSA Global World Series.
Now they’re in Branson, Missouri.
“All these kids attend one school, Greene County Tech,” said co-head coach Pete Cancilla. “They’re all in seventh grade. And they’ve all pretty much been together since six, seven years old. So for us to take a group from one county and go play teams that are from multiple countries, it’s pretty impressive for them to hold their own. Each one of them has got a strength and a talent, and they bought into that.”
