BARTONâ€“The baseball diamond in downtown Barton will be the site of the 2013 12-U Vermont State Cal Ripken Championship, starting on Friday July 5th.
Lake Region is the host team and North Country, despite losing in their district final, will also be at the tournament.
The other two teams will come from the Randolph area and Hartford.
Going into play on Friday, Lake Region has to be considered one of the favorites, as they reeled off three wins in a row to win the district tournament up here last weekend.
