FANTASTIC NEWS....Elmsford Little League Seniors 16U baseball wins New York State Championship
The good news continues for Elmsford Little League! Following on our 12U team's District 20 title, Jon Last, Elmsford Little League Secretary has informed me that for the first time ever, an Elmsford Little League team has won the New York State title.
The Elmsford Seniors, comprised of 16 and 15 year old boys from Greenburgh, rallied from an 0-7 deficit to beat North Tonawanda 8-7, in this morning's tournament championship opener and then secured the state title with a 10-4 victory in the second game. Elmsford bested seven other section champions in the State tournament. This follows Elmsford victories in District 20 and New York Section 3 North tournaments.
Elmsford Seniors now advance to the Eastern Regionals, just outside of Philadelphia, where it will open on Friday morning against the New Jersey State Champions. The winner of the regional plays for the national Seniors Little League World Series in Bangor, Me.
We are so proud of these boys for their tenacity and commitment to the program. The Elmsford Little League champs and their coaches were honored at the Greenburgh Town Board meeting last Tuesday night.
