92 Babe Ruth team: Overachievers
By Bill Barrows
 
I happened upon an ESPN 30 for 30 about the kids from Maine-Endwell (NY) Little League that won last year’s Little League World Series over a powerful and highly favored Seoul, South Korea, team.  This coupled with the fact that our Wabash Little Leaguers reached the championship game of the recent Indiana State Tourney a couple of weeks back, beckoned my thoughts back to another time in Wabash youth baseball history. 
 
Wabash Little League won the first of several State Championships in 1983. In the 1990 season, a group of upstarts comprised the 13-year-old Wabash Babe Ruth All-Stars. Most had played on the 1989 Little League All-Stars, but this was a different game. In Babe Ruth, the dimensions are of major league proportions — 90 foot bases and the pitching rubber is 60 feet, 6 inches, a third larger than before and therefore a different game in many ways.
