This game marks the return of Little League Tournament play for the R.I. Little League. Jaden Perry scored the winning run in the bottom of the 7th inning to win the game (regular games are 6 inning), Congratulations to the coaches and players for the success. The next is Friday at 5:30pm at 16th Street and Avenue C against another team from Peter Stuyvesant Little League, it would be great to see you at the game.
