Due to a reporter's error, in Friday's Maryland District 1 10-11 Little League Tournament game between West End and Valley, it was reported that Jace Hopp hit a run-scoring single. The single should have been credited to Lewis Peck, his second RBI of the game, in West End's 6-5 win. The Herald apologizes for the error.
