Cary boys earn trip to Japan

CARY Jacob Darby and Brandon King wrote winning essays that will send them to the World Children's Baseball Fair this summer.

Kids from five continents will hit Japan this July for baseball clinics and a chance to meet Hank Aaron.

Darby and King play baseball in the same league, but they do not know each other well.

The 18-hour flight to Japan should change that.

It's the first trip overseas for both boys, and maybe the first step to reaching their big league dreams.
