CUP finishes fifth in downstate tournament

ALPENA – The CUP Youth Baseball 10 and under All-Stars finished fifth in the Cal Ripken State Baseball Tournament over the weekend in Alpena, Mich. The six-team tournament consisted of pool play.

The CUP All-Stars played last year’s defending champs Alpena in the first game, and lost a hard-fought battle.

On Saturday, CUP played Clinton Valley out of Mt. Clemens, Mich. and lost 15-3. Later on in the day, they played Huron Valley out of Milford, Mich., and lost 17-4.

All the teams in the tournament were made up of 10-year-olds with the exception of CUP, who had 7, 8, 9 and 10-year-olds playing, making them the “Cinderella” team of the tournament. Huge crowds cheered CUP on.

This is the first time since CUP was organized that they have played in a state tournament. According to CUP staff, the organization is looking forward to fielding teams next year in the 12 and under, 10 and under, and eight and under Cal Ripken state tournaments.
