Elk-McKean finishes year at

World Series

TAYLOR, Mich. — The Elk-McKean Junior Little League All-Stars saw an impressive summer come to an end Wednesday afternoon, as they were eliminated at the World Series after a 5-3 loss at the hands of Illinois.

The loss was just the third of the season for the team, as they entered the World Series with a 15-1 record and end their summer with a 16-3 record.

Elk-McKean’s only other loss came at the hands of St. Marys in the district tournament, as it went undefeated throughout the sectional, state and regional tournaments to reach the World Series.

The Warren Park Little Leaguers out of Chicago, Ill. led from start to finish in the elimination game, as they kept their season alive while knocking Elk-McKean out of the tournament.

Sunday, Chinese Taipei beat Lufkin, Texas, 2-0, to claim the title.
