When the last out was made in the last game of the Ohio Valley regional baseball tournament, the Homewood All-Stars 12U team was victorious.
It was the end of an improbable run, according to one team parent. And the 2-1 victory over Prairie Village, Ky., earned the All Stars a trip to Aberdeen, Md., to compete in the Cal Ripken World Series.
Now the team needs a bit of help from the community. Two local businesses will be holding fundraisers Tuesday, Aug. 5.
