Parkland Little League wrapped up another terrific season of baseball.
The Parkland Rays baseball team was crowned champions of the 12U Majors Divison on May 22. They went 11-1 in the regular season and then won their games in the postseason. They started with a 15-3 win over the Braves before beating the Astros in both the Semifinals and Final, outscoring the opposition 22-7.
