There were a lot of exciting sporting events this weekend, but none was more exciting to me than my former Little League stomping grounds securing a spot in Williamsport.
As I've mentioned before on this site, my 12 year old all star team won the Connecticut state title and was eventually defeated in Bristol. Well this year my squad and the squad from last year was one upped. Down 1-0 in the 6th, after breezing through the previous New England Regional games, Shelton was 2 outs away from heading home. But they were not to be denied and with solo homers from Tyler Tice and Marcelo Ursini they pulled out a thrilling 2-1 victory making them the first Connecticut representative in Williamsport since Chris Drury lead Trumbull National to the crown.
Congrats, good luck and go get 'em.
