This past Monday, the 12U team from Media defeated the East Side Little League District, representing nearby West Chester area, 12-1, securing a first place finish in the state. In winning the Pennsylvania state title, the team also earned a trip to the Mid-Atlantic Regional Tournament being held in Bristol, Connecticut this weekend, along with a chance to move onto Williamsport to play in the Little League World Series.
This is the first time since 1957 that Media has won the State title, and the first time that a team from anywhere in Delaware County has won the 12U State championship since Aston-Middletown took home the trophy back in 1988.
“Media Little League was my hometown team, and I want to congratulate the whole team, including Manager Tom Bradley and his assistant coaches Scott Crowley, Adam Saleski, and Tommy Bradley,” said Delaware County Councilman Kevin Madden. “It’s really just a tremendous accomplishment.”
“Just a big congratulations,” added Councilwoman Christine Reuther. “I wish them the best of luck in the Mid-Atlantic Regionals up in Connecticut.”
