Sunday feature: 25 years ago, Wellington joyfully held itself a Midwest Babe Ruth Regional tournament

The 1995 Wellington 13-15 year old Babe Ruth team. Click to enlarge.

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Not to sound old or anything, but 25 years ago to this day, I was having a lot more fun.

And so was Wellington.

There were no cell phones, no pandemics, no mask mandates, no race riots, no mean-spirited social media posts, and politics were things to think about in November.

In August 1995, my two biggest concerns were a 9 1/2 month pregnant wife and a Wellington Babe Ruth baseball tournament.

Wellington hosted a 13-15 Year Old Midwest Plains Babe Ruth Regional Baseball Tournament that year. Wellington, perhaps the ultimate Babe Ruth town in Kansas history, had hosted many district and state tournaments and even hosted a World Series in 1971.

But this was bigger.

For me, looking back now, it is without a doubt the happiest memory I have as a Wellington Daily News reporter.
