The Wellesley South Little League team came from behind and won 4-3 via a walk-off double vs. Acton-Boxboro in Worcester on Monday night to cap its state championship run. It’s the first time a Wellesley team has won the state title. (Photos via Boston Globe here).
Next up: The New England regional championship, in Bristol, Conn. If Wellesley can win there, it would represent New England in Williamsport, Pa., for the Little League World Series tournament.
Wellesley’s first game in the next round is Saturday, August 4th at 2:00pm vs. Maine’s state champions. The team is guaranteed at least two games on NESN and the New England Championship game — if they make it that far — will be on ESPN (Aug. 11th).
