THE FORKS 10U Babe Ruth softball squad team rides an antique fire truck on Forks Avenue as a celebration for the state and regional championships it won last month.

The team was escorted by Forks city police to Tillicum Park, where the young players and their families were treated to a picnic.

Last week members of the team were honored at the Forks City Council meeting at City Hall.

A proclamation recognizing the members of the team was read at the meeting.

Council member Bruce Guckenberg said that a sign is in the works for the north end of Forks to commemorate the team's achievement.

The team's 12-game winning streak resulted in both the state tournament and regional 10U softball titles.

Forks dominated the state tournament in Othello, going a perfect 6-0 while outscoring opponents 85-3 to win the state championship for the first time.

Forks then went 6-0 at the regional championships in the desert heat of Meridian, Idaho, outscoring the other teams 41-9 in capturing its first ever regional title.

Overall, Forks outscored its state and regional opponents 126-12, or by an average of 10.5-1 in every game.
