Beaver Dam pitcher Tim Janz is pictured during the six-hitter he threw to help lead the Beaver Dam Williamsport Tournament All-Star Team to an 8-2 win over Antigo on Aug. 5, 1992, in the Wisconsin Little League championship game, sending Beaver Dam on to the national regional tournament for a chance to advance to the Little League World Series.

TODAY’S HIGHLIGHT

On this date in 1992, the Beaver Dam Williamsport Tournament All-Star Team, a team of Little Leaguers trying to make it to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, defeated Antigo 8-2 in Wausau to win the Wisconsin Little League championship and advance to a national regional tournament in Indianapolis. Tim Janz pitched a six-hitter for Beaver Dam, striking out 11 and walking three. And powering the way at the plate were Chris Kuenzi and Ryan Root, who belted a two-run homer and a solo homer, respectively, during a five-run first inning that started Beaver Dam well on its way to the state title. It was the first time in Beaver Dam Youth Baseball history that a team had won state, and at stake at the national regional tournament was a trip to Williamsport.
