For Pat Taylor, Wednesday was a good night to get wet. The Conococheague Little League manager was doused with a bucket of ice water after his club secured the league's third Maryland District 1 11-12 baseball championship in five years - and fifth overall - with a 10-5 win over Sharpsburg. Maddux Grove delivered the key blow with a grand slam in the second for a 6-2 lead, and Conococheague never looked back. “That grand slam was enormous and it came from a kid we don't expect to hit grand slams,” Taylor said.
