Hollidaysburg heading to Little League World Series

BRISTOL, Conn. — The Hollidaysburg Area Summer Baseball League team punched its ticket to the Little League World Series with a 7-3 victory over Naamans of Delaware on Friday afternoon in the 12U Mid-Atlantic Regional championship game.

Hollidaysburg, the Pennsylvania champ, avenged an earlier loss to Naamans behind a big day at the plate by Caleb Detrick. The Little League World Series begins in Williamsport on Wednesday, and Hollidaysburg, the first Blair County team to ever reach the World Series, will play its first game next Thursday night.
