WATCH: Pittsfield American’s Evan Blake Hits Homer Over the Scoreboard
The Pittsfield American Little League all-stars are a win away from playing in the Little League World Series.
After a dominant 10-1 victory over Coventry, RI, the Pittsfield squad have earned a birth in Saturday's New England Regional Final. The game will be shown on ESPN at 1 p.m. and will take place in Bristol, CT.
While there were many impressive moments in Wednesday's victory -- Owen Salvatore's complete game on the hill and Antonio Scalise's third inning two-run homer -- maybe the most impressive thing we've seen in the entire Little League season came off the bat of Evan Blake.
In the bottom of the 5th inning, Blake stepped up to the plate with his team holding a 9-1 lead. Then, the ball hit the ferocious bat and this happened:
Congratulations to the Pittsfield American Little League squad and we all wish them the very best on Saturday!
