WARWICK, RI (WPRI) – Although the championship chase is over for the team, the boys will be honored at an awards banquet at the Crown Plaza on September 30.
The team returned home in high spirits early this morning.
Friends and family greeted the boys as they stepped off the bus.
They left Williamsport, Pennsylvania around 6 last night and didn’t make it back until nearly 1 this morning.
Despite the loss, the boys did make history.
They were the first team from Warwick to make it all the way to the Little League World Series, and only one of nine teams from Rhode Island to make it to Williamsport in the past 70 years.
