Two long-time Vincennes Cub League contributors were recognized in a night of celebration, and four games were played on Friday as the 10-year-old Cal Ripken World Series got underway at Joe Bilskie Sr. Field.

The Vincennes Green (the 10-year-old hosts) played too late for today's edition, but three other games concluded prior to the Opening Ceremony. Oahu, Hawaii, handled Milton, Mass., 7-2, in the tournament opener, Julington Creek, Fla., held off Southeast Lexington, Ky., 8-6, and New Canaan, Conn., downed the Vincennes White (9-year-old host), 13-2, in four innings.
