1958 - BEGINNING OF BURLINGTON LITTLE LEAGUE

         LITTLE LEAGUE in BURLINGTON began MAY 1958.  ROY McCONNELL, DR. LIEF ERICKSON, and DR. LAIRD McNEEL were the original founders. 40 boys showed up for the first sign up. The boys were disappointed for lack of managers. First managers were ROY McCONNELL, DON GIANNINI & BOB GROSSMAN. DON wrote the words for the B.H.S. SONG "WE ARE THE ORANGE & BLACK OF B.H.S."

1959

MAY OF 1959 - ROY MCCONNELL requested the assistance of the LIONS CLUB. Try outs were held and over 150 boys turned out. Six sponsors were secured and the teams were sanctioned. The teams were divided into two leagues. The GINGER BEAUMONT & FRANK ROTH.

GINGER BEAUMONT, born in ROCHESTER and later a resident of HONEY CREEK and BURLINGTON, was the first man ever to come to the plate in the world series. He played for the PITTSBURGH PIRATES. His daughter was a resident of Burlington, Mrs. JANET (ENOCH) SQUIRES.

CLARENCE "GINGER" BEAUMONT stepped to the plate for the PITTSBURGH PIRATES in 1903 AND SWATTED A FLY BALL OFF Boston Doves pitcher CY YOUNG. The ball was caught and BEAUMONT went 0 for 5. In fact he went 0 for 12 before getting his first hit in game 4. Game 4 he was 3 for 4. In 1899 he signed with the PIRATES for $2,400.00 a year. He thought he was a MILLIONAIRE.  Later in his career his salary was raised to $3,500.00 a year.  His highest batting average was .357 in 1902 beating out the great HONUS WAGNER. He had a distinguished 12 year career batting a lifetime .311 for the PIRATES, DOVES & CHICAGO CUBS. He retired in 1911 to paint houses in RACINE COUNTY. He was elected as a member of the first class to be inducted into the WISCONSIN SPORTS HALL of FAME in 1951. He died in BURLINGTON IN 1956.

FRANK ROTH was a Burlington resident & he played for the PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES, ST. LOUIS BROWNS, CHICAGO WHITE SOX, AND CINCINNATI REDS and coached for the PITTSBURGH PIRATES, NEW YORK YANKEES, and CHICAGO WHITE SOX. Mr. ROTH died APRIL 6, 1955, at the age of 76 years, at his home on CHESTNUT ST. Mr. ROTH played, coached & scouted professional baseball for more than 31 years. He played for the PHILLIES in 1903 and 1904 and for the BROWNS in 1905. With the WHITE SOX in 1906, he helped them to win the pennant. In 1909 he went to CINCINNATI for 2 years. With the YANKEES, he became that team's first pitching coach. As a youth MR. ROTH spent his summers with his uncle & aunt Mr. & Mrs. FRANK BELLER, a well known police chief of Burlington. He spent 40 years of his life in Burlington.

FRANK ROTH had a brother by the name of ROBERT "BRAGGO" ROTH. He played professional baseball for the WHITE SOX, YANKEES, and ATHLETICS. He came to BURLINGTON to make his home in 1918. He died in an automobile crash in Chicago at the age of 44.

The LITTLE LEAGUE program required all the profits from the BAR ‑ B ‑ Q but it was worth every penny.  There was an old saying back in 1959.  The ROTARIANS owned the city, the KIWANIANS ran the city, but the LIONS had the most fun.

JULY 13 1961. JIM KERKMAN pitched a perfect game. He faced 18 batters and had 18 strike‑outs. REINEMANS won 8 to 0 over the KORKYS.

Letter received from JIM KERKMAN: JIM KERKMAN and his wife SHARON live in MADISON WISC. They have 3 children and JIM works for the I R S. In 1958 JIM had two very close friends NICK WAGNER & DAVE LUEBBERS.  Nick played for GROSSMANS and DAVE played for DONS LITTLE CHEESES. NICK took JIM to a game where BRUCE LOGAN (JOHNNY LOGAN'S SON) was playing a  game behind B H S. DON GIANNINI was a friend of JOHNNY LOGAN (who played for the MILWAUKEE BRAVES) & made the arrangements for BRUCE LOGAN to play. Every time that BRUCE LOGAN batted, NICK WAGNER struck him out. JIM talks about how the 4 coaches picked their players. He was only nine and was drafted by MR. ROTHERING as his second choice. Another pitcher JIM talks about is DICK BUCHOLTZ who played for the MONTGOMERY WARDS team. In 1960 JIM'S dad taught him the change ‑ up curve. JIM states he not only could strike out hitters but could make them look extremely silly. When JIM pitched to his father he taught him control. Any wild pitches JIM would have to chase them. JIM tells of the game where NICK WAGNER hit him with a pitched ball. JIM was laying on the ground and NICK was yelling at the umpire "HE DIDN'T TRY AND GET OUT OF THE WAY SO HE SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED TO GO TO FIRST BASE". Later in the year NICK gave JIM one of the best compliments he ever had in his whole life. NICK told JIM "YOU KNOW YOU'RE ALMOST AS GOOD AS I AM".    In 1961 JIM pitched a perfect game, he struck out 18 players.  In 1962 JIM met another good pitcher, his name was RICH KAYSER.  RICH was able to hit JIM'S fast ball and curve ball. Sentry had a pitcher by the name of MARK MULLIGAN. JIM said he could throw very hard. Another player PHIL UMNUS who was one of their better hitters. PHIL was a left handed batter, could not hit JIM'S pitching because he was a left handed pitcher. He kept throwing the ball at PHIL'S head and the ball would curve over the plate. 1962 BURLINGTON entered the MILWAUKEE tournament. JIM pitched and beat CUDAHY 4 ‑ 1. JIM talks about playing with the MERCHANTS. His manager was DAVID UMNUS. His last game at MUKWONAGO he went 5 for 5. He likes to remember that game above anything else.

These words were spoken "Minor League has reached its maximum growth, both from a FINANCIAL and an ETHICAL point of view. It would cost to much to organize any more teams, you would build it up beyond its intended proportion. Today's program is Ideal, I hope it stays this way. (spoken by  ANDREW EISENBART.) Today there are over 200 in MINOR LEAGUE & 350 in T‑BALL. (1993)    Year of 1997 we have added SENIOR LEAGUE & total number of players is about 900 children.

No coach or Manager can be in the coaching box. No TOBACCO of any form is allowed. Only 2 twelve year olds may pitch in a week and no more than 6 innings for each pitcher.

RON ANTON was the player of the week for the BURLINGTON MERCHANTS. Ron discussed that when he was in sixth grade he tried out for a outfielder, but they didn't have a catcher and he volunteered. Ron stated that he has been catching ever since and it is great. Ron first started organized baseball in 1951. He tried out for the "ST. JOHN NEPOMUK TEAM." Ron stated the outfielders and infielders played catch but the pitchers could not practice because there were no catchers. One day Ron put on the tools of ignorance, since that day he has worn the catching gear through the PAROCHIAL LEAGUE - CADET LEAGUE - RACINE LIONS to the final CONNIE MACK GREAT LAKES REGIONAL tournament in FORT WAYNE INDIANA. Ron went to WHITEWATER where he played 4 years of football and 2 years of baseball. Ron talks about his memories - one hitters, 2 hitters and even NO hitters. His big thrill was picking off 4 runners at 2nd base in one game. He came within one out of catching a perfect game. Ron's IDOL in base ball was YOGI BERRA. Ron's nick name in his early years was "YOGI". Ron states the one thing that will stick in his mind is the players he played with or against. For without them and the tools of "IGNORANCE" he would never have had the enjoyable days of baseball.

These people just CRITICIZE our youth and have very little to offer." The difference in whether a person passes or fails in life is what he does with his leisure time, and that's where sports enter in. Athletes are more willing to give their lives for their country, for they have found the true reasons for WINNING, COMPETITION  & LOYALTY. There are five secrets that bring out the sand lot ball player into the big time: (a) SKILL (b) SPEED (c) STRENGTH (d) STAMINA & (e) SELF ‑ DISCIPLINE.

1974 

MARCH 4 1974: JIM SPIEGELHOFF is the president of both leagues. The school board has agreed to let the league use all 3 diamonds at WALLER school. 

SHARON MAMATH and TAMMY WOODRUFF wanted to play little league ball. President JIM SPIEGELHOFF had to say "no." The rules of little league do not allow girls to play as of this season and as of this date, May 8th 1974. There are court cases in the east hoping to change this rule. A comment was made that they were two of the better players in the try outs. JOE ARRIGO of MILWAUKEE spoke to the BURLINGTON LIONS CLUB. He stated that girls should not play little league baseball and that Little League is for fathers and sons. Little League started in 1939 by CARL STOLTZ. 

Names of the some of players for the 1974 season: GARY & GREG GERFEN ‑ KEVIN WEILER ‑ PAT KERKHOFF ‑ ROD GRETEBECK ‑ KEVIN BIRKY ‑ BRAD LOIS ‑ KEN KLINE ‑ DON GRASSKOPF ‑ JEFF MORROW ‑ MIKE KRISMER - SCOTT VONDRA ‑ LAIRD HINTZ ‑ KEITH KOENEN ‑ WAYNE FELL ‑ BOB REESMAN ‑ BUCK & RANDY SPIEGELHOFF ‑ STEVE RUETER ‑ MIKE ROLA ‑ CLIFF KOHLER ‑ JEFF BARTZ ‑ BILL McCOURT ‑ CRAIG BRAUNSCHWEIG ‑ TIM THOMPSON ‑ BOB RIGGS ‑ BILL BETZIG ‑ DOUG HOZESKA ‑ DAN STEFFENS ‑ SHARON MAMATH ‑ TAMMY WOODRUFF. 

SHARON MAMATH & TAMMY WOODRUFF were the first two girls to play little league baseball in BURLINGTON. After many years in the courts, the national little league organization finally allowed the girls to play little league baseball. The first years in little league were very difficult for some of the girls. Some managers, coaches, and parents would not accept them in the program. Soon after the courts allowed the girls to play, some managers attempted to change the rule by making it mandatory that all girls had to wear a CUP. Thank GOD there were no managers in BURLINGTON with this attitude. As of 1993 hundreds of girls have played in the program, learning the fundamentals and good sportsmanship of baseball. Their learning knowledge helped them when they changed over to playing soft ball, and later in life after graduating from high school. 

TAMMY WOODRUFF played with the MINIS and the MINIS won the league championship. SHARON MAMATH played with the MIDLAND MITES.  SHARON has taken over her father's business "MAMATH LOCK & KEY." She states that what she have learned in little league helped her through high school, serving in the army & now running her father's business. Sharon showed her determination in little league, and soon she was recognized by the boys and coaches for her ATHLETIC ABILITIES. Her coach recognized her and she soon became a starter and played her favorite position ‑ 1st BASE. Sharon said the experience in little league competition with the opposite sex taught her not to give up on herself or other people. Always keep trying knowing she would succeed the IDEA or the MISSION. Thank GOD the first girls to break into LITTLE LEAGUE proved that they could compete with boys sports. Many girls were misjudged, misused, and humiliated, but they hung in there and today (1993) the girls have broken into the sports at all levels. High schools now have accepted the girls sports program and we can watch some very talented ladies perform in the world of sports.

            JUNE 12 1974: TIGERS 6 and 3; MIDLAND 6 and 0. WHIZ KIDS defeat the MINIS 15 ‑ 14 for the overall championship. With the MINIS leading 14 ‑ 13 top of the sixth and two WHIZ KIDS on base, manager BILL BRANEN decided to walk KEN KERKHOFF who had 3 hits at this point of the game.  KEN KERKHOFF reached out and hit a wide pitch and hit the ball to a surprised second base man. The throw to the plate eluded the catcher and two runs scored. WHIZ KIDS win the game. 

BEAUMONT ALL STARS defeat the ROTH ALL‑ STARS 4 ‑ 1   DAVE KERKHOFF and GREG & GARY GERFEN pitched a great game.  ROTH only had 6 hits. BRAUNSCHWEIG & THOMPSON each had 2 hits. The three pitchers allowed no walks. ROTH and BEAUMONT ALL STARS are eliminated in the MILWAUKEE TOURNEY, 4 ‑ 2 & 6 ‑ 4, respectively. STEVE RUETER was the only ROTH player to get 2 hits.

Grandfather of one of the LITTLE LEAGUERS never missed a game that his grandson played. He always positioned himself behind home plate.

When his grandson was batting and I would call a strike he would start to rave: "THAT PITCH WAS OUTSIDE, HOW COULD CALL IT A STRIKE?" At the end of the season, his grandson played in MILWAUKEE. Grandpa went along with the BEAUMONT ALL STARS. Unfortunately, they lost their first 2 games. Unaware he was back in BURLINGTON, I was getting ready to enter BRANEN FIELD DIAMOND. Out of nowhere came grandpa; he yelled "ROLLY, I went to MILWAUKEE and watched my grandson play his two games. YOU KNOW WHAT, ROLLY? THE UMPIRES IN MILWAUKEE ARE WORSE THAN YOU ARE." He sure made my day; I went out and worked my game. Boy did I have fun.

FRANK ROTH, a former MAJOR LEAGUER, spent much of his retirement in BURLINGTON. He died in 1955. Few people are aware that FRANK ROTH’S brother was another league player - "ROBERT FRANCIS ROTH." In his 8 years he had an admirable record. He was nicknamed "BRAGGO." He had a lifetime batting average of .284 and he stole 389 bases in his career. If it were not for BRAGGO, the BLACK SOX scandal might never have occurred. It seems that BRAGGO was traded to CLEVELAND in a 1917 deal. This sent SHOELESS JOE JACKSON to CHICAGO. JACKSON helped to throw the 1919 world series and he was kicked out of baseball by commissioner MOUNTAIN KENESAW LANDIS. BRAGGO has a mystery record of having hit 36 homers in one season. In the early days if a ball bounced over the fence, it was a home run, now it is a ground rule double. BRAGGO died SEPT. 17, 1936 in a car accident.

KIWANIS STATE TITLE BID FALLS SHORT The KIWANIS stranded nine

base runners in losing to to HORICON 2-1 in eight innings. Racine's failure

to score more offset an outstanding pitching by JEEP HUELSKAMP. JEEP H. went

the distance. He struck out 11 batters, allowed only 3 hits & walked 3.

The loss was just JEEP HUELSKAMP 3rd in 10 games. Mr. SCHIESTLE words were

"JEEP was tremendous, he was in command for the whole game."

RYAN DUSSAULT rewrote the county's passing records. He completed

115 of a possible 204 for a total of 1,837 yards. His record shows 29 touch

downs & only had 5 interceptions. He was 1 vote short for being elected to

second team ALL STAR HONORS. JEREMY UHLENHAKE a split end finished with 39

receptions for 785 yards & 16 touch downs. DAN JOHNSON finished with 3,606

of total offense. DAN stands 6'4" & is 275 pounds. BURLINGTON foot ball

team had a great year. We can all be very proud of them.

BHS FOOTBALL

BHS  defeats WESTOSHA CENTRAL 40 ‑ 0.  This win provided MR. DON DALTON with his 200th victory. DON started coaching in 1969. His record is 200 wins ‑ 56 loses ‑ 1 tie ‑ 22 conference championships & 2 undefeated seasons. Present at the celebration was MR GREG HOFFMAN the first quarterback for his first victory of his 200 wins. His first team went 9 & 0 in the year 1969. GREG HOFFMAN is the father of current BURLINGTON QUARTERBACK RYAN HOFFMAN. RYAN had a good night against W. CENTRAL. He completed 10 of 18 passes for 193 yards, & 4 touch downs in what was a career high night. Mud spattered players roared in UNISON for a coach who was more like a second father to them. A banner with the words "CONGRATULATION MR. DALTON ON YOUR 200th WIN" was unfurled for the large crowd.

BHS plays SOUTH MILW. in their first play off game for 1995. BHS dominated the whole game. The team played excellent defense & offense. Score of the game was BHS  40  & SO MILW.  6.  SO. MILW. scored its 6 points on the last play of the game.

BHS plays PARK HIGH SCHOOL at Plymouth. B H S hopes to become the first team in school history to win a second‑round WIAA football play off game. MARK SHEPHERDSON has gained 1358 yards going into this game. BHS defeats PLYMOUTH by a score of 21 ‑ 14. What a great victory. The disappointment of the past years is finally put behind coach DON DALTON. RYAN HOFFMAN hit ANDY SCHUMACHER on a 48 yard touch down pass with less then 5 minutes to play. One of the turning points before the touch down was PLYMOUTH needed 1 yard for a first down on the BURLINGTON 24 yard line. The DEMONS stopped  them & BURLINGTON took over.

BHS is ready to play MONROE HIGH SCHOOL at JANESVILLE'S MONTEREY STADIUM. This game will be W I A A division 2 semifinal. Coach DALTON spoke "I HAVE AN INTERNAL FEELING THAT WE’RE GOING TO PLAY IN MADISON."  Game time a very cold & windy day. It was not our day. MONROE  23 & BURLINGTON  0. We can all be proud of our football team for 1995.
 

CATHOLIC CENTRAL FOOTBALL

 

CATHOLIC CENTRAL high school to play in the WISAA ‑ 3 quarter final. The score of their game was MANITOWOC LUTHERAN  49 & CATHOLIC CENTRAL high  0.  Lutheran outgained the HILLTOPPERS  296 ‑ 80 in total offense. JAKE VOGELSANG who had 1007 yards rushing coming into the game was held to 31 yards on eight carries. TOM ALDRICH had praise for his team.

 

CATHOLIC CENTRAL SOFTBALL

 

KATIE LOIS a pitcher for BURLINGTON CATHOLIC CENTRAL. KATIE was one batter short of pitching a perfect game. She struck out 12 of 15 batters she faced. In the top of he 6th she hit the lead off batter to allow the only base runner for the CRUSADERS.  KATIE played in the LAKE LAND LITTLE LEAGUE & SENIOR LEAGUE of KENOSHA COUNTY. She helped pitch the SENIOR LEAGUE to a state championship in 1994.

 

GIRLS SOCCER

 

 
BURLINGTON 3  WHITEWATER 2    Goal keeper KAREN

HENNINGFIELD had 14 saves for the BURLINGTON team.

 

MIDDLE SCHOOL  FOOTBALL

ALISON BRABAZON & MEGAN WAGNER become the first two girls to break into the BHS football program. Both girls attend the MIDDLE SCHOOL. Both girls played in the BURLINGTON LITTLE LEAGUE program. More girls would be involved but they had to choose between football and volleyball. The two girls wanted to play football & proceeded to get 121 signatures from classmates, teachers & teammates. BERNIE SCHYVINCK said the girls will not get preferential or special treatment. One big difference will be to fit their uniforms. The girls are 2 of 50 total players. There never are any cuts. ALLISON is 5' 6" and 104 lbs. a wide receiver. MEGAN is 5' 4" and 115 lbs. a fullback.  This is interesting to me, I've been involved with girls playing BASKETBALL, LITTLE LEAGUE and now FOOTBALL in the BURLINGTON SCHOOL DISTRICT. I wonder how long before WRESTLING.

 

THOUGHTS ON MAJOR LEAGUE PLAYER STRIKE

 

After 8 months of striking the MAJOR league baseball players have decided to go back to playing ball, there are a lot of unhappy fans. There is a lot of discussion on players getting too much $$$ ‑ owners are making to much $$$. It’s hard to believe that players making millions of $$ are not happy. Owners are making millions and they still want more. This is the sad part, both sides are making millions of $$$ & they want the tax payers to build them a new stadium. A baseball lottery was turned down by the voters. The GOV. in MADISON could not understand this. Some people can not see the forest for the trees.

Why did the players change there minds so quickly & decide to play ball? Reason they saw the replacement players & saw that they were better players. They were afraid that they would lose their jobs. The replacement players were better and they would have played for less $$$. It will be great to go a little league game and see some real ball players.

1996      To be added

1997 

Problems from the old L.L. BOARD, a petition states that the election held in OCT. 1996 was not legal. After much discussion the parties who signed the petition back off and say we are OK. BUTCH FABER & IND. L.L. state that they will not become involved because it is a local problem. Election was held the same as it has been for many years. Coaches are invited to our meeting for input. New ideas are discussed. Meeting of JAN. 97: it is voted on and passed that 9 year olds will be allowed to play in little league if their parents first OK it. Discussion followed on only 2 or 3 will be allowed to be drafted on one team. Discussion on expanding the league by adding 2 more teams. 

JAN. 19th 1997: MIKE MIDDLECAMP resigns from the board. TED LIGHTFIELD states that he will be the president & LINDA AUSETH states that she would like to be the vice president. Both are elected. KEVIN McPHIPPS gives treasurer's report. In the past a large amount of $$$ was in the account. He will keep less $$ in the checking account & move the money into the MONEY MARKET. There it will draw interest. Two dates are set for MARCH for registration. 

FEB. 16th 1997: LINDA AUSETH is now the president of little league. TED L. stepped down so that he could be more involved with CHIEF UMPIRE. Both were in agreement with the board. LINDA presented membership cards. They were excepted by the board. Some of our old uniform pants have been sold for $130.00. Old jerseys will be sold at the sign up for $3.00 each. 

MARCH 2nd 1997: Money collected from the registration $8,990.00. Lot of discussion in regard to purchasing new uniforms. March 23rd should be the last meeting for purchasing. Another big change in the city tournament playoff. Instead of having one game for the championship, there will be a series of best out of 3 games. This will get more playing time for all players & require more than one pitcher. All members were in agreement.

APRIL 22nd 1997: TAIWAN, the greatest power in LITTLE LEAGUE baseball, will not field a team in this year's WORLD SERIES for 11 & 12 year olds. The Chinese feel unable to comply with a rule limiting the number of players in each school district. Separate leagues would hurt a school's ability to field a single elite all star team. TAIWAN has won 17 LITTLE LEAGUE titles since 1969 & seven of the last 11 years. About 3 million leagues from 84 countries take part in LITTLE LEAGUE base ball.

1987    Little league baseball celebrated the 40th anniversary of the world series. The 1947 little league world series champions from the MAYNARD LITTLE LEAGUE in WILLIAMSPORT are reunited on the field before the championship game.  Former NEW YORK METS pitching great and little league graduate, TOM SEAVER, tossed the first pitch.

1988    RAY KEYES is the only sportswriter to have covered every little league world series from 1947 ‑ 1988. TOM SEAVER a graduate of the SPARTAN LITTLE LEAGUE in FRESNO, CALIFORNIA, became the first enshrinee of the PETER J. McGOVERN LITTLE LEAGUE MUSEUM'S HALL OF EXCELLENCE. MR. & MRS OREL HERSHISER of NORTHVILLE MICHIGAN were honored as little league parents of the year. They are the parents of CY YOUNG award winner OREL HERSHISER of the LOS ANGELES DODGERS. 

1989    LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL celebrates its 50th anniversary with activities ranging from a stirring salute from PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH on the white house south lawn to an ALL‑STAR salute from MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL at the ALL‑STAR game in ANAHEIM CALIFORNIA.  President & chief executive officer, DR. CREIGHTON J. HALE, joins PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH in POLAND to present certificates of charter for the first four little league programs in EASTERN BLOC COUNTRIES.  Little league graduate DAN QUAYLE assumes the duties as VICE PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES. CARL YAZTREMSKI becomes the first little league graduate to be inducted into BASEBALL'S HALL of FAME.  Entertainer and little league baseball trustee BOB HOPE welcomed representatives from throughout the world to kick off the 18th international congress in WILLIAMSPORT. TRUMBULL NATIONAL LITTLE LEAGUE OF TRUMBULL, CONNECTICUT becomes the first team from the UNITED STATES to win the world series since 1983. First woman to umpire in a WORLD SERIES is BETTY SPEZIALE.

1990    LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL launches first full season of the CHALLENGER DIVISION for mentally & physically disabled children with 10,000 participants in 333 chartered leagues. Little league emergency management training program reaches more than 65,000 adult volunteers. VICE PRESIDENT DAN QUAYLE & former major league all‑star MIKE SCHMIDT are enshrined into the PETER J. McGOVERN little league museum hall of excellence. Little league baseball is now enjoyed by children in 39 countries. CHINESE TAIPEI regains the championship of the little league world series with a 9 ‑ 0 victory over SHIPPENSBURG PENNSYLVANIA. 

1991    Chinese TAIPEI defeats DANVILLE, CALIFORNIA 11 ‑ 0 in the final game of the LITTLE LEAGUE WORLD SERIES.

1992    KAREEM ABDUL‑JABBAR, GEORGE WILL, & TOM SELLECK were guests at the little league world series. All were little league ball players. The EAST (PHILIPPINES) defeated LONG BEACH CALIF. by a score of 15 ‑ 4. The game is under investigation. The PHILIPPINE DAILY INQUIRER newspaper raised allegations that several FILIPINO players, including star pitcher IAN TOLENTINO, were over the 12 year old age limit. SEPT. 18th 1992 ‑ LITTLE LEAGUE baseball stripped the PHILIPPINES of this year's world series title, and awarded the championship to LONG BEACH CALIF. The ASIAN team used ineligible players. Only 6 players were eligible to play on the team. The rest of the team was added by MANILA OFFICIALS who wanted to defeat TAIWAN and advance to WILLIAMSPORT. Two names, ROBERTO PLACIOUS & MICHAEL GONZALES, were world series stars. Little league baseball depends on the local officials to settle all eligibility questions. There is no follow up at WILLIAMSPORT. This seems hard to believe. Everybody does their home work except WILLIAMSPORT. What a "HOLLOW" VICTORY, that was not won on the field. The only consolation: "THEY DIDN'T GET AWAY WITH IT." 

1993    JUNE 1st 1993 - The PHILIPPINES still are trying to win with illegal players.  ZAMBOANGA the city of the PHILIPPINES which won the LITTLE LEAGUE SERIES last year and was then stripped of the title was among 3 squads disqualified in 1993 for again falsifying age records. One of the teams was stripped last year (1992) of the little league world series after officials discovered some of the players were over the age limit of 12. Three players had their ages changed and 2 players had fake birth dates. LONG BEACH CALIF. becomes the first U. S. team in history to win consecutive LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL WORLD SERIES championships with a win over PANAMA.

1994    MARACAIBO VENEZUELA had a batting average of .311 & ERA of 0.75.  NORTHRIDGE CALIF had a batting average of .218 & ERA of 2.00. Guests of the series were JIM PALMER & VINCENT FORTANASCE. ABC's WIDE WORLD OF SPORTS completed 32 consecutive years with the LITTLE LEAGUE WORLD SERIES. Rain delay caused the game to be completed under the lights. This is the first game to finish under the lights. The pitcher from VENEZUELA was throwing at 72 ‑ 75 miles per hour. Good plays: right fielder backing up first base. ‑ Chinese play year around. This means a boy playing in China will play 4 years of little league for each year a boy plays in WISCONSIN. ‑ Chinese are very fast. ‑ During the rain delay the Chinese coaches talked about how they would play to win. Calif. coaches took a nap. ‑ Runner caught off 2nd base on a throw from the catcher. ‑ Very good fundamentals in a successful run down ‑ fielders know where to go with the ball. ‑ Left fielder threw runner out at the plate after catching a long fly ball. ‑ Runners did not require a passed ball to steal a base ‑ good fundamentals.  Drop a fly ball, miss a ground ball, make a bad throw. Never will I complain. Catch a fly ball, field a ground ball and not know where to throw the ball & you will run run & RUN. – ROLLY.  JUSTIN GENTILE from NORTHRIDGE CALIF. in a previous game allowed 1 hit, 2 walks & had 13 strike outs for a win over the SPRINGFIELD VA. team.

SPECIAL NOTE:  It has been estimated that more than 80% of the MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL players active today have participated in the LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL program.

NOTE: To reach the WORLD SERIES more than 7,000 teams play 12,500 games in only 6 weeks. It would take the MAJOR LEAGUE baseball 6 full seasons to equal the little league baseball tournament schedule. 84 countries make up the LITTLE LEAGUE program.

1995    Guest announcer for the championship game was DALE MURPHY from the ATLANTA BRAVES. He was voted into the HALL OF FAME OF EXCELLENCE.

1996    Guest CODY WESTER played in the world series in 1982.

1997    SHARON ROBINSON, daughter of JACKIE ROBINSON, is a guest at the little league series. JACKIE ROBINSON entered MAJOR LEAGUE baseball in 1947.

1998    DON SUTTON, DODGER pitcher & HALL of FAME member, is guest for world series.

1999    ROBIN YOUNT ‑ TOMMY JOHN ‑ KENNY ROGERS & BRAIN SIPE are series guests.  World series games are played with the mandatory 10 run rule after 4 innings. Every player must play even if the 10 run rule is enforced at the end of 4 innings, if a player does not meet the rule you have to forfeit the games. Boys 13 years old were playing before the series ended.

2000    MARACAIBO VENEZUELA comes to PA. to play LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL & they only have one bat. Donations from local equipment company provided the winning team with bats to play with & they took them all home with them.  There were 42,000 fans present to watch the game.

2001    PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH, the PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES was on hand to throw out the first pitch. Mr. BUSH is the first PRESIDENT that played LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL. MRS. LAURA BUSH was also present. FLORA STANBURG was the first LADY to umpire home plate in LITTLE LEAGUE history. She is also a GRANDMOTHER. Attendance for the game was 44,800. APOPKA FLA. made some errors in the bottom of the 6th inning that cost them the ball game. (1) 2 errors at 3rd base, 1 error at shortstop. (2) A throwing error to first base. (3) Runner sliding into home plate head first missed home plate. (4) Coach came from 3rd base coaching box & told the runner to go back & touch home plate. It was a very exciting game FLORIDA was ahead 1 ‑ 0 into the bottom of 6th inning. ‑ More detailed documents of the eligibility of their players, including proof of age & residency. Stricter rules were announced after 4 months of the ROLANDO PAULINO LITTLE LEAGUE team from NEW YORK, was stripped of its third‑place finish. Pitcher DANNY ALMONTE was found to be too old. Changes are (1) Player birth certificates must be filed with the government within 30 days. (2) Players living in a foreign country must have lived there for 2 years. (3) Teams will be required to carry player documentation throughout the tournament. They will be rechecked before the world series.

During the season, White teams would forfeit the game instead of playing the ALL‑BLACK team. CANNON STREET team was crowned the STATE CHAMPION, but were not allowed to play in the LITTLE LEAGUE WORLD SERIES, because the team got there by all FORFEITS rather than ON‑THE‑FIELD WINS. The team rode a bus to PA. talking about the trip they made 47 years ago. Before the ceremony the players received bats & balls from the children & began to play ball. They said that running the bases was not as easy as it use to be. They chatted, heckled & had fun. Each player was introduced to the crowd at the LITTLE LEAGUE COMPLEX.
