Whatcom County baseball trio headed to All-American Games

Three Whatcom County youth baseball players were selected to represent the Northwest region at the United States Specialty Sports Association All American Games from Aug. 7-13 in Kissimmee, Fla.

Bellingham’s Ethan Brimble and Lynden’s Lane Simonsen were selected to the 10U Northwest American team. Brimble plays for the Cascade Crush, and Simonsen plays for Lynden.

Ferndale’s Dylan Strom, who also is a member of the Cascade Crush, was selected to the 11U Northwest National team.

“Dylan showed a really strong arm, above-average control and he’s a true power hitter,” USSSA senior vice president of events Matt Trebuchon said in a video announcing the Northwest selections.

All three players were selected after a tryout in Tacoma – one of 24 tryouts held nationwide for the All-American Games.
