Colonie LL to Get All-Star Celebration on Friday Before Heading to Bristol, CT
The Colonie 12U All-Stars have mashed their way through 16 games (all wins) since tournament play began over a month ago. During the impressive run, this group has beaten their opponents by a total of 173-28, outscoring the other teams by an an eye-popping 145 runs.
Yes, you read that right. Their average score per 6-inning contest is nearly 11-2. But enough about the gawdy numbers, we know this team is really, really good.
The number that matters now is the number 2; that's how many more wins they'll need before this special gourp of boys can play for a chance to be crowned National Champions at the LL World Series in Williamsport, PA.
The 12U All-Stars from Colonie will be heading to Mid-Atlantic Regions in Bristol, CT this weekend but before they go, they'll be given an All-Star sendoff at their home field of Cook Park in Colonie on Friday night at 7:30PM.
The invite to send this team off was announced on the Colonie Little League Facebook page:
