It's never easy to wake up from a dream that's everything you wanted and more. The 2011 Hagerstown B PONY team was awoken a little sooner than it wanted, as it was knocked out of the PONY East Zone tournament after its second straight loss, a 13-3 five-inning drubbing at the hands of New Bedford (Mass.) in the losers' bracket semifinal on Saturday. “I'm proud of these kids,” said Hagerstown manager John Phillips. “They're a fine group of ballplayers and they've played their hearts out.” The miracle run to the East Zone tournament was highlighted when Hagerstown B defeated Hagerstown A twice in the regional tournament in Boardman, Ohio.

Asked whether his baseball team would now be known simply as the Hagerstown PONY All-Stars or still as the Hagerstown PONY B All-Stars, manager John Phillips didn't hesitate in answering. “We're B, baby. That's who we are,” Phillips said. “When we get the banner from the region tournament, I'll use a Sharpie to put a B next to Hagerstown if I have to.” The team and its coaches wore that B like a badge of honor as they prepared for the East Zone Tournament in Manchester, N.H., this weekend, having beaten the Hagerstown A team twice to get to this point.

Hagerstown A defeated Hagerstown B 14-4 in six innings on Sunday to win the PONY League Baseball Section Tournament at Funkhouser Park. Neither team lost, though, as both Hagerstown teams advance to the region tournament in Boardman, Ohio on Thursday. “Anytime that you score 14 runs, you should be able to win the ball game,” said Hagerstown A manager Steve Berger, whose team was 3-0 in the tournament. “I don't think that we played that particularly well today. But still, anytime that you can win by 10 runs, you'll take it.” Riley Arnone drive in four runs, while Tim Hartsock and Sinjin Shoop added two RBIs each for Hagerstown A. Winning pitcher Jordan Stonebreaker hurled four innings before Hartsock closed out the game with two scoreless innings.
