JOHN DAY - Local Babe Ruth baseball player Kasey Ashmead has been chosen from a select group representing just 5 percent of all players from the United States and Canada to be included in a book honoring the accomplishments of 15-year-old all-stars for their efforts on the baseball diamond.

Ashmead will have his picture, along with a biography and statistics placed in the book of Who's-Who among Babe Ruth baseball players. The book will become a permanent edition to the library at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y, and also at the Babe Ruth Hall of Fame in Maryland.
