Local youth baseball teams at Levy and Winthrop parks win World Series


The Levy Park 8U All-Star team captured the Cal Ripken World Series in Ocala this past weekend.

Two local youth baseball all-star teams ended their seasons and summers in big ways.

Levy Park (8U) and Winthrop Park (12U) each captured their respective organization’s World Series titles.

Levy Park won the 8U machine pitch Cal Ripken World Series last weekend in Ocala.

The team, managed by Manny Quiñones, went 16-1 across state, regional and World Series play and outscored opponents 204-25. Its lone defeat came in the state tourney.

Levy run ruled Ocala 11-1 to win the World Series.

Home to youth advance play (8U and 9-10U), the World Series title is the first for Levy Park under the Cal Ripken banner.

“These kids have great skills for the same at such a young age but it’s their tremendous heart for the game that’s most impressive,” head coach Manny Quiñones said.
