KRS Krusaders Are LL Blue Division Champs

The KRS Krusaders concluded a 17-1 season on Wednesday, June 17 by winning the Larchmont Mamaroneck Little League Blue Divison with an exciting 5-3 victory in game two of the three-game final series against MAMTA Federal Credit Union, a tough competitor. MAMTA had won three tough playoff games to reach the final series as a result of very strong pitching.

KRS jumped out to a 5-0 lead behind the strong pitching of Steve Wahrhaftig, but MAMTA, coached by John Daley and Andrew Zucker, showed their patience as they had throughout the playoffs. MAMTA had three consecutive extra base hits, including a ball hit by Lukas Corona that bounced off the outfield fence at Goetze Field. MAMTA cut the lead to 5-3, with a runner on base in the bottom of the sixth.

Steve Wahrhaftig pitched a strong championship series.

“The final game was a great way to end our season,” said KRS Co-Coach Dave Wahrhaftig. “Our boys held on against a very strong team. Both teams played with courtesy and respect for their opponent, both teams made exceptional plays. It was Little League baseball at it’s very best.”

“Our boys played as a team from the very first day of practice,” said Brad Kreinces,  KRS co-coach and team sponsor. “They supported their teammates, had fun in every game, and showed great sportsmanship throughout the season. We’re proudest of that, whether we win or lose. Every player on our team did something special during the season. For example, Tom Stafford, a righthanded batter, turned around and got two hits as a lefty late in the season. “

“Our congratulations to MAMTA on a fine season, as either team could have won the series,” added Mr. Kreinces.
