COLUMBUS - State Senator Troy Balderson (R-Zanesville) today honored the Zanesville Junior Pioneers Baseball team on its first national championship title won last month during the 73rd All American Amateur Baseball Association tournament in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. 

"Our hometown team winning a national tournament is a source of pride—not just for Zanesville—but for the entire state of Ohio," said Balderson. 

Senator Balderson presented the players with a resolution during a special presentation at the Ohio Statehouse, honoring the team on its victory at the tournament. 

With a final score of 8-2, the Zanesville Pioneers defeated the Flood City's Paul Carpenter Capital Advisors, earning the franchise's first national championship victory. Until this year, Zanesville had never won the AAABA Tournament title in the history as a franchise. The team made its first trip to the tournament in 1947.
