Little League District IV Major Division (11-12) Tournament â courtesy of a 10-3 victory over Cumberland National at Bernonâs Ayotte Field on Friday night â manager Matt Netto expressed some dissatisfaction.
PROVIDENCE â Eight-year-old Estuardo Estrada of Providence stares up into the beady eyes of a Triceratops, a three-horned, plant-eating dinosaur that roamed the earth 65 million years ago.
Illuminated by overhead multi-colored lights, the beastâs head â boasting the largest skull of all land mammals â suddenly moves from side to side, itâs short, pointed tail wagging in unison.
The creature suddenly lets out a roar, startling Estrada and the crowd of other junior paleontologists standing nearby.
Wide-eyed and breathless, Estrada grips the hand of his stepfather Gabriel Vargas.
