Congratulations to the Junior Division Little League Team B on capturing the JCLL Tier B Championship


Congratulations to the Junior Division Little League Team B on capturing the JCLL Tier B Championship this past Sunday with a solid 6-1 win over the extremely mentschlich Young Israel of Plainview!

Mazel tov to team members Dovid Abramovitz, Yaakov Biderman, Ari Glaser, Chaim Yosef Halberstam, Boruch Herskowitz, Yehuda Inslicht, Aryeh Linn, Yehuda Mittel, Binyomin Musheyev, Yosef Naiman, Moshe Septimus and Yosef Chaim Septimus. A special mazal tov goes to game-ball winners Boruch Herskowitz and Yosef Chaim Septimus.

The team played and looked every bit like champs with a superlative pitching performance by Boruch Herskowitz, who pitched a brilliant complete game striking out more than 10 batters while scattering several hits and surrendering only one run.

Behind Herskowitz was an impressive and outstanding defense by both the infield and outfield. Of course, the team received quality at-bats earning many walks and very timely hitting by Yosef Chaim Septimus, Aryeh Linn and Dovid Abramowitz. Combined with a picture-perfect bunt with two on by Yehuda Inslicht, who then reached safely, and a long RBI sac-fly by Yaakov Biderman, AY-B put the game safely out of reach by the fifth inning.

A tremendous Yasher Koach goes to the team’s co-managers, Chayim Herskowitz and David Linn, for all their patience and skill in coaching these boys over the past several years, and to their assistant coach, Aryeh Goldschein.
