keller@herald-mail.com "Honey, that vacation will have to wait. " That might have been what coach Darryl Powell said to his wife Sunday after Funkstown Post 211 beat Frederick for the Western Maryland District American Legion baseball title and a berth in the state tournament, which begins today at Frank Perdue Stadium in Salisbury. A state title would make Powell's trip to Myrtle Beach, S.C., well worth the wait. "We're supposed to leave (Salisbury) and go right down from there," Powell said.

SALISBURY, Md. - It comes down to this for Funkstown Post 211: Sweep Chaney Enterprises in a doubleheader today, and it wins the Maryland American Legion state title. After three games in a 36-hour period - and an early-morning wake-up call for today's 8 a.m. start - accomplishing a sweep will be difficult, indeed. Funkstown advanced to the best-of-3 championship series with a 7-2 victory over Salisbury on Monday afternoon. But Post 211 suffered a heartbreaking 6-5 loss in 10 innings in Game 1 of the series Monday evening, and now must win Games 2 and 3 today.

With temperatures hovering around triple digits at first pitch Thursday evening, West Salisbury not only overcame the heat, but a seven-run deficit in the sixth inning to claim the Maryland 10-11 Little League Tournament championship. Trailing 9-2 entering the bottom of the sixth, West Salisbury mounted a memorable comeback, producing eight runs without recording an out to stun Elkton 10-9 at Conococheague Little League's Ebersole Field. “I knew some of the boys were tired from the ride up and we've had two days off, so I knew it would take them a little bit of time to come through,” West Salisbury manager Pete Peterman said.

West Salisbury is just like any of the other teams in the Maryland State 10-11 Little League Tournament in one respect: It has nine players on the field. The biggest difference is West Salisbury tends to dominate the opposition.

West Salisbury has outscored its opponents 68-11 in the three games it has played, averaging 4.25 runs per inning over 16 innings.
