It was a solo trip to Orange on a chilly Monday afternoon to take in Conn. East against Maine in the Little League Junior Softball Regional Tournament.
Amalia DeMartino was the winning pitcher, tossing a 1 hitter and had 9 strikeouts. She even chipped in with 2 hits and an rbi at the plate.
Eva Ott Hill had a double, single and an rbi and Dana Boothroyd had a single and rbi for Conn. East(Coginchaug). Boothroyd was spectacular behind the plate making some outstanding catches on foul pop-ups.
The single elimination Playoffs begin Tuesday. Conn. East will play at 11:30am. They are the #2 seed in the New England Pool.
The winner of this Tournament advances to the Junior Softball World Series in Kirkland, Washington.
The demand for Wally was unbelievable. I told him he needed to attend the game on Tuesday - in Wally's Wheels of course - to Orange we go
