Parents - thank you again for having your son participate in Plymouth Babe Ruth. We had a wonderful season finished off by exciting playoff series in both the Downie and Rose Divisions and an unbelievable Downie All Star game that raised thousands of dollars for the Bradley and Molly Webster Trust Fund.
