Local on Babe Ruth champ team

Headed to world series


A local baseball player is on the team headed from the Pacific Northwest to the Babe Ruth World Series this month.

Dalton Kentner, playing for the Columbia Basin Riverdogs in the 15-and-under bracket, will head to the big Babe Ruth League ultimate competition in Williston, North Dakota Aug. 13-20.

The Riverdogs, from the North Washington region, took the championship at the 2016 Pacific Northwest 13-15 Year-Old Babe Ruth Tournament in Camas, Washington July 25-31, winning 2-1 Sunday over Hazel Dell Metro, the South Washington team from Vancouver.

To get there, the Riverdogs bested 10 teams from Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, and Alberta, Canada.

Kentner pitched seven strong innings for the Riverdogs for the win, according to Narrative Science and GameChanger Media.

He is the son of Scott and Carla Kentner of Electric City.
