Boys baseball team to play in Cooperstown tourney

The Savage Boys & Girls Club Wolverines, an 11/12 boys travel baseball team, will go to Cooperstown, N.Y., tomorrow to participate in a Cooperstown Dreams Park youth baseball tournament and visit the Baseball Hall of Fame.

The boys and their coaches will stay in dormitories on the campus of Oneonta State College until July 18. They will participate in opening and closing ceremonies, competitive rating "tryouts" and a home-run derby, said parent Dawn Stewart.

The team will trade souvenir pins with young players from New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Massachusetts, Michigan and Illinois, Stewart said. Debbie Cameron, whose son Steve is a member of the team, is coordinating the trip.

Team members and their families have raised money for the trip by selling tickets for raffle baskets and running a dunking booth at the Savage festival last month. Trip sponsors are still being sought.

Robert Bettencourt is the team's head coach. Assistant coaches are Mike Cameron, Dan Franklin, John McVicker and Gene Price. Team members are Josh Alvandi, Rocky Arauzo, Emilio Betancourt, Dan Bushong, Steve Cameron, Ian Conner, Grant Franklin, Kevin McVicker, Mike Mullinax, Shane Price, Bobby Stewart and Paul Tsikerdanos.
