Arlington Babe Ruth champs

The 8-under Arlington Babe Ruth All-Stars celebrate after winning a district tournament championship.

Four Arlington Babe Ruth all-star baseball teams from ages 8 to 11 won their district tournaments over the last two weeks and will move on to state competition, with some action beginning July 5.

Arlington Babe Ruth Storm teams at the 8, 9, 10 and 11 age groups defeated Herndon and Alexandria teams to win District 7 crowns.

While each Arlington team posted big scores, most notably was the 8-under squad that defeated the Herndon Hawks in two games and Alexandria Pioneer in a single game by a combined score of 36-4.

Double-elimination state tournaments are held in Haymarket, Rockville, Waynesboro and New Kent.
