Sending out congratulations to the Little League team from Maine-Endwell for their 2-1 victory over Seoul, South Korea, in the Little League World Series championship game in Williamsport, Pennsylvania!
Maine-Endwell is a local school district near where I live in upstate New York. Maine is a small town and Endwell is a section of the adjoining town of Union. Their field is just down the hill from the retirement community where my parents live.
They were the smallest squad in the tournament with only eleven players. I expect they drew from the smallest population area, too. Seoul’s team was drawn from the entire city of 25 million.
After an undefeated local season, the M-E team won sectional, state, regional, national, and now international titles for an overall 24-0 season.
While everyone in our area is thrilled for them, we are especially proud that they also won the tournament’s sportsmanship award.
Great work, M-E! Enjoy the parade tomorrow!
