WestportNow.com Image
The Westport Little League softball 12U All-Stars today defeated Fairfield 2-1 in a dramatic nine-inning game at Westport’s William F. Meyer Field to clinch the program’s second straight district title. Westport’s star pitcher Sophia Alfero continued to display utter dominance throughout the day, as she took a perfect game into the fifth inning. But it wasn’t until the bottom of the ninth that Westport wrapped up the victory. Westport now moves on to the divisional tournament, which begins next week in Darien.

Orphenians on Yankee Stadium Big Screen

The big screen scoreboard at Yankee Stadium tonight showed the Staples High School Orphenians singing the national anthem behind home plate. An adjacent big screen identified them as being from Staples High School (without identifying the school’s location—but Westport was mentioned by the public address announcer.)  Anxiously awaited for months by the Staples singers, the appearance was delayed one hour and 21 minutes by rain before the game against the Philadelphia Phillies began.
