Softball players in Saegertown received a big welcome after competing in a tough competition.
Saegertown District 1 softball team received a ride on a fire truck following its thrid-place finish in the Softball Little League World Series.
Hundreds of people came out to celebrate with the team, which made its second appearance in the tournament.
“We were familiar with it,” coach Tom Bruno said about the tournament. “We knew the grind it was going to be and it made it a lot easier for the girls because we could prepare them for it.”
Bruno said they’re hoping to bring home a first-place trophy next year.
“Game wise it was a lot different,” Haley Wells said. “There was a lot of pressure on us I guess, but the experience all in all was really great.”
