New Windsor, New York Little League ended last Friday, with how most of their games started, with lots of rain. Although, the rain drops and muddy field did not stop the New Windsor Royals from swinging their bats and diving for the ball on the soggy field Friday evening.
The New Windsor Royals consist of eight go-getting and eager Pre-Schoolers, Kindergarteners and first graders, ages four through seven.
The young Royals Tee-Ballers are: Matthew Cardona, Mason Fredenburg, Brandon and Sienna Kargov, Dillon Murillo, Ashley Myers, Gavin and Nicolas Pineiro.
All members of the team not only played and understood the baseball basics, but got along extremely well throughout season. All shared their bats, helmets and more important a great time with one another.
“Wow, I can’t believe how well the kids played with each other,” said one of the Royals’ parents.
The New Windsor Royals were a little sloppy on the field, (what do you expect from five-year olds?) but determined and enthusiastic in the dugout and at bat.
The team’s power-hitters were Fredenburg and surprisingly, the youngest member, Gavin Pineiro.
Two members with good arms for throwing were Cardona and Brandon Kargov. Most determined and willing to learn baseball were, Myers and Murillo. Most eager for the ball on the field was Nicolas Pineiro, who sometimes would abandon his first base position, to race for the ball near pitching mound.
Sadly, the one who broke the “there’s no crying in baseball,” rule was youngest girl, Sienna Kargov. Miss Kargov, a cute four-year-old, would only play on her terms. But hey, no one said this was Major League Baseball.
All in all, the New Windsor Royals showed excellent sportsmanship throughout the short season.
As the Royals game came to an end against the New Windsor Reds, the Royals were excited to wrap their tiny hands around their shiny gold-plated baseball trophies.
Lots of warm good-byes, hugs and kisses, and lots of picture-taking of the Tee-Ballers ended bitter-sweet, while the rain drops made a home-run.
