The local Whatcom Americans 12U Cal Ripken baseball team was the unmistakable winner at the Pacific Northwest Tournament in Meridian, Idaho recently. That means they have earned a place in the national championship tournament to be held in Monticello, Arkansas, August 5th to the 14th.
Of course, getting the team there, fed and put up in for several nights is not free. So players and their families are putting on a carwash in Ferndale in the Key Bank parking lot on the south side of Main Street between 3rd and 4th Avenues on Saturday, August 1st, from 9am to 2pm.
Carwash tickets can be purchased in advance ($10 suggested donation) and other donations to the team made (if you don’t need your car washed) at 2nd Avenue Sports located on 2nd Avenue just north of Main Street.
