The honors just keep coming for the New Hyde Park Little League Softball Girls Majors team.
North Hempstead Supervisor Jon Kaiman and members of the town board last week hosted a reception at town hall honoring the New Hyde Park Little League All-Stars for winning the regional crown of the Little League Softball World Series.
New Hyde Park won the East Regional championship on July 27, becoming the first Long Island team to qualify for the World Series since an Islip team did it in 1993.
“These girls simply didn’t become great overnight,” coach Tom Donnelly said. “It required plenty of hard work over a long period of time. We’re certainly proud of them and they should be very proud of themselves.”
