WILLIMASPORT, Penn. (WPRI) — The boys from Barrington now have two days off before taking the field Tuesday in the next game of their Little League World Series.
The team was originally slated to play Monday after they beat Kentucky 6-1 in their elimination game on Saturday.
Owen Pfeffer tossed a gem for the team, pitching a complete game and getting 7 strike outs while only allowing two hits.
Lucas Tanous was a star at the plate with three hits on the day, driving in half of the runs for the team.
Barrington is slated to play the loser of the Hawaii/New Jersey game, which was suspended on Sunday due to rain.
That game, which was 6-0 Hawaii in the top of the fifth inning, will pickup Monday at 1 p.m.
On Sunday night, the team will take part in the 3rd annual “MLB Little League Challenge” where the Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago Cubs will play at the renovated Historic Bowman Field in Williamsport.
The participating players, coaches and families of the 16 teams taking part in the 2019 Little League Baseball World Series will all fill the stands of the stadium for that game.
Members of both the Cubs and Pirates will also be in attendance for Sunday’s LLWS games. The youngsters will also get the opportunity to meet and interact with the big leaguers.
