HOLTVILLE — A dream came true recently for Travis Wilcox, 10.
He and his teammates from the San Diego Stars North, a traveling tournament baseball team, flew to New York where they took first place in the annual 10-year-old tournament at Cooperstown Dream Park in Cooperstown, N.Y. Forty-eight teams from across the United States participated in the tournament.
Travis, a fifth-grader at Finley Elementary in Holtville, was accompanied on the trip by his parents, Mike and Traci Wilcox, and his sister, Taylor. His entourage also included his grandparents, Gene and Joyce Wilcox of Holtville and Lorenzo and Marsha Lizarraga of Alpine.
On the first day of the tournament, which was Father's Day, Travis gave his father a present by hitting two home runs.
