The tournaments, played at the Williams Street Fields, were sponsored by the Marlborough Youth Baseball Association (MYBA). According to MYBA General Manager Peter Scerra, 16 teams from six states participated in the tournaments. Scerra noted the Regional Tournament is considered "prestigious," as the winner eventually goes on to the World Series. The Marlborough team won the 11 U State tournament championship over Littleton, 10-9 and will next play in the Regional Tournament to be held in Warwick, R.I.
