CUMBERLAND – Twenty-four hours after their epic, come-from-behind 9-6 victory over gritty Lincoln in the District IV championship game, it was back to business as usual for the Cumberland American All-Stars.
They returned to practice at their Garvin Field home on Tuesday night, ready to move on from one of the most exciting and memorable contests in R.I. Little League Tournament history.
Thanks to Jayden Struble’s clutch three-run walk-off home run in the bottom of the sixth inning at Burrillville’s Sherman Park on rainy Monday night, CALL earned a chance to continue their season with a berth in the state tourney.
Skipper Dave Belisle is now preparing his young men for the next task at hand – that is, winning the Rhode Island crown. The kids will face their first test at 12:45 p.m. this Saturday when they take on District III champion Coventry American at Bristol’s King Philip Little League diamond.
