Frederick, MD - The Frederick Keys, class Single-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles and parent company Comcast-Spectacor will honor Thurmont Little League, winners of the Maryland State Little League tournament, on Wednesday in a pre-game ceremony before the Keys regularly scheduled 7:05 p.m. game against the Wilmington Blue Rocks.

The Thurmont Little Leaguers, coached by John Tomasini and comprised of eleven 11-12 year olds, will travel to Bristol, Connecticut from August 5 - 15 to take on other teams from the Mid-Atlantic region to play for a chance to advance to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA.

During Wednesday night's game the Thurmont Little Leaguers will be recognized pre-game and stand with the Keys' players during the National Anthem. During the game the little leaguers will be in the stands raising money to help cover the cost of their trip to the Little League Regional Tournament in Connecticut.
