I've done it and I know you've done it. I love watching the Cal Ripken World Series in the comfort of my home on the TV and now we've got a Cal Ripken team in Kennewick going all the way to the tournament. You can help these kiddos go all the way to #1

You can help these little super-stars get back east to compete and I'm super excited for them.

The Kennewick American 12year old Major 70’s All-Stars are headed to the Cal Ripken World Series in Branson MO Aug 4-15 and these 12 young men have been working hard this summer in many tournaments and so far the team is 17-0!


That's just one component to get to the tournament, now the team needs to raise money to get there and they have a few ways that you can help them achieve that goal.

Here's how YOU can help:

1) The team is holding a car wash at the Kennewick American fields Saturday, July 3 from 8-12, 2125 S Olympia St in Kennewick.

Car wash is by donation.

2) The team is raffling off a 34 pro series Traeger with accessories valued up to $900. A fire bowl, fire pit donated by C2 pools, 4 rounds of golf at Canyon lakes and many many more prizes donated by local businesses in the area.

Tickets are $20 and will be available at the car wash, from the team directly and any other locations posted on their Facebook page, KennewickAmerican12UAllstars2021.

Donations can also be made on their Facebook page by individuals. A list of all prizes and official rules will be on the Facebook page and at the car wash. All donations will go directly to the team.

They've worked hard, let's see if we can get these great kids to the finish line so that you and I can enjoy the games and root them on in Branson.

You can check out more details on their Facebook page here.
