2018 Minors Championship Game




The Pediatric Partners LLC Cubs defeated the Joey's Pizza Pie Reds to win the 2018 Little League Minors championship in a hard fought game. Excellent pitching marked the Cubs victory as Drew Kallor was outstanding going 2 2/3 scoreless innings and striking out seven. Seba Mikan finished the third inning in dominant fashion and Barak Goldberg was the closer, giving up only one run over the last two innings and striking out three. The Cubs took an early lead in the first by scoring five runs but the Reds pitching was excellent in the middle innings limiting the Cubs offense and giving the Reds an opportunity to make it a close game. Offensive standouts for the Cubs were Finn Moeller(3 for 4, 2 runs), Seba Mikan(2 for 2, 3 runs), Jack Croce(3 for 3, 3 runs, 2 rbi), Avi Mayo(2 for 3, 1 run, 3 rbi) and Nick LaPorta(1 for 2, 1 run, 2 rbi). Offensive standouts for the Reds were Rohan Scott(2 for 3, 1 run, 1 rbi), Henry(2 for 3, 1 run, 1 rbi) and Wills(2 for 3, 1 run). Henry and Dylan Albert were excellent pitchers for the Reds and Owen Higgins did an outstanding job as their catcher. The fifth inning proved to be the pivotal inning in the game as the Reds were threatening to make a dramatic comeback but the Cubs made three outstanding defensive plays to keep their lead intact: 1) an outstanding relay on a triple to right field from right fielder Josiah DeJesus to first baseman Drew Kallor to catcher Finn Moeller who tagged out the batter trying to score an inside-the-park home run. 2) Catcher Finn Moeller throwing to third baseman Jack Croce to catch the runner trying to steal third base. 3) Pitcher Barak Goldberg scooping a scorched line drive on a short hop and throwing the batter out at first. The game ended on a fly ball that was caught by Jack Croce at first base and the Cubs celebrated by mobbing each other at the pitcher’s mound. The coaches of both the Cubs and the Reds were extremely proud of their teams, each had outstanding years and graciously congratulated each other like champions, as they did during this game and the entire season.

2018 AAA Championship Game



The Watkinson Orioles beat the The World Series Club Dodgers 12-9 in a battle for the ages to win the 2018 West Hartford Little League AAA championship.  Matthew Panarella from the Orioles pitched 4 spectacular innings racking up 7 Ks while Ethan Shifrin closed out the final two innings of the game with 3 Ks. On the hill for the Dodgers were Jared and Lincoln who also pitched an exceptional game with 12 Ks between the two of them.  The Orioles took a 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning on back-to-back hits by Matthew Williams (AKA Dub’s) and Bennett Johnson.  The Dodgers responded in the bottom half of the first inning with lead off hits by Michael, Jack, and Anderson which helped the Dodgers cut the lead to 3-2. In the top of the third inning, the Orioles scored 5 unanswered runs with hits from Ethan Shifrin, Matthew Panarella, Brody Dorian, and Casey Pyro helping the O’s increase their lead to 10-2.  The O’s bats went silent in the 4th and 5th innings led by strong pitching by the Dodgers pitcher, Lincoln. After 5 innings of play the score was 10-4 with the Orioles on top. In the top of the 6 inning the O’s had a two-run two-out rally led by Ronan Foley who doubled to left field and Casey Pyro who dropped down an Ichiro Suzuki style bunt which helped the O’s add two more insurance runs to the board. The Dodgers were looking to disrupt the O’s momentum with a come from behind win by leading off the bottom of the 6th inning with 5 quick runs with hits by Ben, Michael, Jack, Lincoln, and Anderson. If not for the strong catching by Matthew Williams and two spectacular defensive plays in the bottom of the six inning by Bennett Jackson (SS) and Matthew Panarella  (First Base), the Dodgers might have rallied for the win. In the end, the O’s were victorious winning the game by a final score of 12-9.  Congratulations to both teams for making it to the championship game as well as to all the AAA teams for making 2018 another fun and joyful season for West Hartford Little League.

2108 Majors Championship Game



The TOPS PC Orioles beat the Athena Health Care Systems Phillies 7-5 in a thrilling, extra-inning affair to win the 2018 West Hartford Little League championship.  Pitching was exceptional for both sides, with Harris Berson (7 Ks in 2 2/3 innings), Nicky Zaleski (9 Ks in 3 1/3 innings) and Eli Kramer (1 K in 1 inning) working the hill for the Phillies and Aidan Bailey (5 Ks in 3 innings) and Lucas Pyrro (8 Ks in 4 innings) dealing for the Orioles.  The Orioles took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first on back-to-back hits by Pyrro and Jack O'Neill.  The Phillies responded in the bottom half of the first, taking a 2-1 lead on hits by Jordan Baitch, Ben Lemieux, and Harris Berson.  In the top half of the second, Matty LaBreck and Carter Clayton scored to make it 3-2 Orioles.  O'Neill singled in Pyrro in the third to increase the Orioles lead to 4-2.  In the bottom of the fourth, the Phillies answered, tying the game 4-4 behind hits by Spencer Berson and Jordan Baitch and an RBI double by Harris Berson.  In the top of the fifth, the Orioles fought back to take a one-run lead, as Pyrro's double drove in Carter Ivens.  The score remained 5-4 until the bottom of the sixth, when Spencer Berson's one-out double drove in Conner Minihan to tie the game.  Regulation ended when Ryan Zappone made the defensive play of the game, tagging first and firing home to double up the potential game-winning run.  Moving into extra innings, the Orioles jumped on the Phillies for two runs in the top of the seventh on big hits by Reid Buchanan, Ivens, Pyrro, and O'Neill.  The Phillies were unable to answer in the bottom half of the inning, as Pyrro worked around a walk to strike out the side and secure the championship victory.  All in all, it was a game to be proud of, not only for both teams, but for all of West Hartford Little League.
