I want to take the time on behalf of the players and coaches of the State Finalists 12 year old All-Star team to reach out and say "THANK YOU" to all of you who followed us in support of our run to the State Championship Games.
It wasn't easy for all of you to make multiple trips to Waterford for the Section 3 tournament or the State Finals in Guilford. It was very inspiring for our boys to look out of the dugout and see so many of you there to support us! And we certainly heard you!!! Yours cheers and enthusiasm created an electric charge for the players in all 16 of our games and helped push them to accomplish this run. I had mentioned to them that every time they put that Newington uniform on, they should feel unbeatable. With your enthusiastic cheering, they felt that!
Thank you for coming out to follow us on this incredible journey! It has become a summer to remember! Thank you to the coaches who came down to the practices and helped out- specially in the cages.
Thank You to Coach Jack Hurley, a former NLL manager, who took time from his Legion team and throw special batting practices for us! Thank you Greg Ucello, a former Newington Little League, Newington H.S and UConn baseball player who spent many nights at Volunteer helping us out!
A very special THANK YOU to Coach Steve Bugnacki and Coach Drew Callahan, who did the lion's share of getting our boys to accomplish Newington Little League history.
Finally, hats off to all of you, once again. Your support at each venue, outnumbering fans from other teams was so valuable in creating the amazing chemistry that this team had! The memories will last a lifetime!!!
Our team battled until the last out and lost 6-4 vs Fairfield in the State Championship game...Came back from being 6-0 down...

Oh What a Night! Late July back in 17'! CT 12U Section 3 Champions! Our Newington boys Flipped the Script after all previous Newington teams dating back to the 70's had lost to Waterford, and we beat them on their own field 10-2! We had lost to them two nights earlier 14-6 and didn't know if we would get another crack. Boy did we ever make the most of it. Of 175 12U AllStar teams, we are now in the Final Four in Guilford beginning next Friday with Ellington as our 1st opponent with the CT Championship on the line and a berth in the CT Championship.
This is a great year to be part of Newington Little League. Our very own boys 12u all star team pulled off a come from behind victory to win the district 7 title and did it undefeated. What a great job! Congratulations goes out to the whole team and their coaches. Best of luck in the next round of sectionals!
