Little League AA Championship
In Saturday’s Naperville Little League Majors AA Championship game, pitching was the story of the day. Dan Cercello of Round Hill Wealth Management struck out 11 batters in only five innings to give his team a great chance. But Will Clermont of Frey Orthodontics was the hero at the plate and on the mound, driving in the game’s first run with a double in the fourth inning. That was all his team would need as Clermont allowed only two hits en route to a 2-0 shutout, winning the Majors Championship for Frey Orthodontics. Congratulations to both teams on a great season. The Supreme A, Majors A and Rookies championship games will be played tomorrow night at Nike Park.
