Fans give Barrington Little League a warm welcome home

Little League World Series

BARRINGTON, R.I. (WPRI) — Despite their early exit from the Little League World Series, the team from Barrington returned home to a hero’s welcome Wednesday evening.

The boys were handed their second loss Tuesday night by New Jersey. They previously lost to Virginia and then defeated Kentucky.

Rhode Island State Police provided the team an escort to Sherwood Field once they crossed into the state.

Waiting for them in Barrington were family, friends and fans holding signs, congratulating the boys on a great season.

“We’ve been on cloud nine for a long time, ever since the season started it was a dream season to me,” Head Coach Chris Promades said. “I know the way they play the game is the right way. They play it with honor, integrity, they commit and buy into the team concept and give it everything they’ve got. They leave everything on the field, they have no regrets and I couldn’t be more proud.”

The boys spent time catching up with friends and family while also taking time to autograph baseballs and t-shirts.

“It was cool to see that everyone cheered me on even though they couldn’t come,” Alex Anderson said.

Owen Pfeffer said he is thankful not only for all of the support the team received during their World Series run, but also for the memories they made along the way.

“It’s like I gained 12 other brothers and three dads,” Pfeffer said.
