Poland Ohio is the 2016 Central Region Junior League Champion

SOUTH HOLLAND, IL - In a day fraught with lightning and rain delays, potential field moves and concern that the tournament would have to extend another day, the softball deities moved the weather away to allow the Championship Game to complete with the Ohio State Champions coming from behind to win over Michigan's Delta County, 4-3 in 6.5 innings.

Earlier in the day, in the consolation game, the State Champions of Indiana, Yorktown JAA Little League, defeated the State Champions of Illinois, Melrose Park Little League, 2-1 and took 3rd and 4th place respectively.

The OH team will fly directly to Seattle, WA to attend the Junior League Softball World Series in Kirkland, WA which starts Sunday, July 31st.

Congratulations to Poland Little League on advancing to the Junior League World Series!
