“More than 1,000 people came from out of town to visit our ballpark,” said tournament director Welby Saunders.

That number didn’t include hometown fans cheering on Lancaster’s 8U, 10U and 12U baseball teams and 10U softball team. The ballpark was overflowing with spectators and as the parking lots filled, fans were forced to park along side streets and on grassy areas.

“It was great to see that many people at the park,” said Saunders, who believes it was a record crowd for the facility.

Games began last Thursday night and continued through Saturday evening with the King William Camo Crushers taking the overall tournament championship in the 12U baseball division. The Crushers won the gold bracket with Northumberland as the runner-up.

Gloucester won the 12U silver bracket, Denbigh the bronze and Westmoreland the copper.

In the 10U baseball tournament, Gloucester won the gold bracket while King William was the runner-up. Denbigh won the silver bracket and Richmond County was the runner-up.

Lancaster went unbeaten to win the 8U tournament, while Richmond County was the runner-up.

Essex won the 10U softball tournament and Mathews was the runner-up.
