Brick Little League Celebrates New Jersey State Championship
Let's be honest, it's pretty hard to get some positive and uplifting news these days, so I was thrilled to come across a post from the Township of Brick sharing the great news that a Little League New Jersey state title is coming back to Ocean County!
The Township of Brick took to their official Facebook page to share the news yesterday afternoon:
According to a team press release, this year's Brick Little League New Jersey state championship marks the first time in exactly 30 years that the boys from Brick took it all on the state level.
In fact, the press release points out that there's a father/son connection between the last Brick Little League New Jersey statewide championship in 1990, and the 2020 title, with George Cavanaugh, a member of the 1990 championship team, cheering on his son Taylor this year.
Under normal circumstances, the Brick team would move on to the Mid-Atlantic Championship where they would go head to head against other state winners for a spot in the Little League World Series.
Unfortunately however, 2020 is anything but normal and the New Jersey state championship will be as far as the Brick Little League team will be able to go this year following Little League International's April cancellation of regional tournaments and the Little League World Series this year in the wake of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
Regardless, though, it's definitely something to be proud of and we enthusiastically pass our congratulations on to the ballplayers on the Brick Little League team for bringing the hardware home to Ocean County!
