Cumberland American punches ticket to District IV finals

July 7, 2014

SMITHFIELD — The Cumberland American All-Stars came into this R.I. Little League District IV Tournament winners’ bracket final with consecutive “mercy-rule” triumphs over rival Cumberland National and Burrillville.

In the latter tilt, skipper Dave Belisle’s crew clobbered nine extra-base hits and 17 in all to deliver a 19-0 pasting, that following a 10-0 victory over CNLL.

The key question on Monday night was this: Did Smithfield have enough offensive firepower to outduel CALL?
