Juneau's Tal Norvell, right, slides safely into second base Sunday with a steal past Ketchikan's Kabel Lervick during the fifth inning of the Junior League Baseball District II championship game. Norvell went on to steal third base, and then he scored on a passed ball at home plate for a 10-0 mercy-rule win over Ketchikan. Norvell's teammates voted to give him the "Hustle Award" after the game. "I knew I got a really bad jump heading to home and everyone was yelling to get back, but it was too late and I went for it," Norvell said. Juneau will host the Junior League State Championship against Dimond West of Anchorage starting Thursday.
