Congratulations to the Braves, who finished the season, 19-3, and undefeated in the playoffs.
The Braves won the Parkway Little League Championship last night defeating the Reds before a packed house in dramatic fashion, 7-5, with a walk-off homerun in the last inning by Sean Bruen. "A huge win! A huge win!" said Braves' coach Jack Moynihan, who praised both teams, and was asked about about who came up big in the championship, "Certainly Sean Bruen had a great game. Joe O'Leary; and there are a set of twins, Pat and Kevin Roache - Kevin started and Pat closed. And my guy, Jake Moynihan had a good game, as did Sean Adgate." The Braves went undefeated through playoffs, finishing with a team record of 19-3. The Braves are sponsored by Trethewey Brothers. Jack MoynihanManagerParkway Braves

This isn't the 1950s when wooden bats were the only option.
Many adults only had one baseball bat option when they were in Little League - a wooden bat. If it broke, you hopefully could buy another one, or your teammate had a bat you could use. This isn't your father's Little League. Nowadays with wooden, aluminum, alloy, hybrid bats and more - there are bats that are banned from the Little League International (LLI) leagues, which Parkway Little League is a member of. "There is a little league international rule that bans 'some' bats. Many of them are the composite bats that are very popular because they give an added pop to the bat," said John Fitzgerald, vice president of Parkway Little League. "However, for safety reason LLI has ruled them a hazard in response to a study done done at UMass …
