It's a bus ride that will never get old for Cumberland American Little League.

The newly crowned New England Regional champions left Bristol, Conn., Sunday morning for Williamsport, Pa., and the Little League World Series.

"They left via coach bus at nine in the morning," Eastern Region assistant director Patrick Holden said.

Cumberland American is making the trip to Williamsport for the second time in four years. Cumberland American also won the New England title in 2011, then went 1-2 in pool play in the World Series.

In both 2011 and 2014, David Belisle was the manager. Belisle deflected credit away from him and onto his assistant coaches Matt Wright and Bill Davock.
