The Wilson Tigers with Della Romano pitching in the DCIAA championship game at Nationals Park on Sun. June 5 defeated Cardozo 12-0 to win their 19th consecutive baseball championship. The game was part of the fourth Congressional Bank Classic held at Nationals Park and included games between Sidwell Friends and Maret representing the private schools, and Cardozo vs Wilson representing the public schools. Included in the 10 hours of baseball was a Citywide All-Star game and a Celebrity Softball game. Gerald Hall, director of baseball operations for the afternoon of free baseball said, "We brought in 150 kids between the ages of 7-12 years to give them an opportunity to see the high school players showing their skills and hoping one day they would also want to be play at Nationals Park. The day is definitely a treat for the seniors as they get an opportunity to play baseball using the same facilities that the professionals use."
