Loftus Makes World Series, Just Like Brothers

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Kennewick's Loftus family knows how to play baseball.

Sunday, Blake Loftus became the third brother in his family to reach either the Babe Ruth or Cal Ripken World Series.

What's more, Blake and his two other brothers have all worn the number 22.

Loftus and the 12-year-old Kennewick Americans begin their quest at a Cal Ripken Title, August 12th in Maryland.

Blake says he is glad to join his brothers in making the Series.

"It's big," said Loftus. "I dreamed about it and it came true. I'm so excited. On the final out, I was on top of the world. I just couldn't believe it. I was finally there."
