It was a fun season. These girls got a little better every time they showed up to the field. It really showed at the end of the summer season when they won 4 straight games to become the number one seed. The championship game was a well played game by both teams - Cromwell Black and Cromwell Red. Cromwell Red won the championship game because of great play by the whole team. They were led by pitching performances from Malena Signorello and Jamie Anderson and an offensive attack by the whole team led by Khaya Skene.
Congratulations to the Runners Up also from Cromwell....
Just in cast you missed it, Cromwell had a BANNER weekend in Central CT Summer Baseball League. 16 teams competed over the course of 7 weeks and Cromwell comes out a HUGE winner.
Cromwell Black came out the BIG winner by taking down West Hartford 10U 14-8 on Saturday Afternoon. The Cromwell Black team (#7 seed in Tournament) had a magical week of games. First they took down a combined team from Manchester on Wednesday night 14-13. Next up was Glastonbury who had not lost a game during the regular season the boys played nearly flawless winning 4-3. Next up on Friday's semi-final against Portland and they won that handily. Then came Saturday's final where the boys put up a 10 run inning after being down early and bring home the championship. There is a really good right up on The Sports Depot (http://thesportsdept.com/2014/08/02/cromwell-910s-tournament-champs/). Coach Steve Barrett and his staff should be very proud of their boys.
Also on Saturday, our Cromwell Red team took home 3rd place in the same division of play. The Red team started the week on Thursday taking on Newington Blue and beating them 9-1 at home. On Friday they took on West Hartford in a great game that came down to the last inning. With Cromwell leading 4-3 in the six, the bases were loaded with 2 outs for West Hartford and ground hits the lip of the grass and then off the 2B Michael Drazak's eye for the winning run to score. Coach Brian Favereaux and his staff should be very proud of their boys.
All of these boys represented Cromwell Little League and should be congratulated!
11 Year Old Boys - After losing their first game, they won back to back games and needed just one more win to advance to the Championship bit they fell just short of that goal losing to to Coginchaug. Nice job by Coach Sullivan and his boys.
12 Year Old Boys - They went 3-1 in pool play and won their first play off game beating Coginchaug 2-0. They then had to face Old Saybrook again. They fought hard but in the end, didn't have it to advance further. Nice job by Coach Lombardo and his boys.
