The “Road Warriors” won the Little League District 23 Majors Baseball title for the first time in Peter Stuyvesant Little League’s (PSLL) history!
The district tournament round includes Manhattan and Western Bronx little leagues and is the first step toward a chance to advance to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA.
The team started their title run by defeating North Riverdale LL 10-0 on June 25 and coming from behind to knock off Greenwich Village LL 6-1 on June 28.
The next game on June 30 was a game for the ages — Two hours, 53 minutes, 8 lead changes or ties, 8 pitchers between the two team, two great base running slides, a go ahead two-run double in the bottom 5th, a two out game tying hit in the 6th, a throw out at home plate to preserve a tie in the 6th, three home runs (two by PSLL), one with 2 outs, 2 strikes in the 7th to tie the game and one walk-off hit to cap the Road Warriors’ 5-4 win over West Side LL!
With PSLL in the winner’s bracket and needing only one win, a culmination of years of previous teams coming up short ended with a come from behind 10-8 win over Harlem LL on Monday, July 8.
Next up is the double elimination Section 5 round which includes the eight District winners from all five boroughs and southern and central Nassau County.
