The Maine-Endwell Little League World Series team will be honored at the home of baseball, just a short 80-mile drive from where it all began for a group of 11 players who refused to lose.
Team members and coaches will visit the Hall of Fame on Sunday, Oct. 23, and be honored in a special 1 p.m. ceremony in the Museum’s Plaque Gallery hosted by Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson. Earlier this year, the team donated a signed baseball and a team photo to the Museum’s collection, both of which are now on exhibit in the Museum.
Maine-Endwell became the first team from New York State to win the Little League World Series title since a team from Staten Island in 1964. Theyl also became the first team to win the Jack Losch Little League Baseball World Series Sportsmanship Award in the same season that it won the overall title.
