The Fairfield American Little League baseball team will play in the Division I tournament next week after defeating Westport 8-3 to claim the District II title Saturday afternoon at Unity Park in Trumbull.
P.J. Egan pitched a complete game to improve to 4-0 this summer while Ian Bentley was 4-for-4 and Jamie Fink and Vince Camera had key home runs. Camera was named the tournament's MVP.
"Our motto for the whole team is we do it together," American head coach
Mike Steed told Mary Albl of the New Haven Register/GameTimeCT.com. "And we have different heroes every night; and that's
the beauty of this team is they pick each other up"
Earlier in the week, the Fairfield American 50/70 (Intermediate) Little League team won the state championship and advanced to the Eastern Regional Tournament that will begin on Saturday, July 19 in East Northport, New York.
