The Lincoln traveling team has a lot of
talent. "This is the first time that Lincoln Pony Baseball in any
league has advanced this far," said Dean Colby.
The team now advances to zone finals in
Bay City, Mich., starting this Thursday. Eight teams representing
the region will compete at the North Zone finals. The Lincoln Heat
will meet up against teams from Joliet, Chicago and Kankakee, as
well as Iowa, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio and Michigan.
The tournament proceeds in pool play.
The teams will be divided into two pools and will play the other
teams in their pool one time. The winners of the two pools will then
enter a single-elimination tournament on Sunday.
