Media Team Needs Just One More Win To Make It To Little League World Series
A local team is knocking on the door of making It To The Little League World Series. Some kids from Media have been putting on a show. They already had earned the right to represent Pennsylvania in the Mid-Atlantic Regional. But after beating Washington D.C. 16-3 Tuesday night, they are now just one win away from getting to the Little League World Series. They get that chance in the Mid-Atlantic Championship game on Friday night. This is the first time Media has represented Pennsylvania as the State Champion since 1957.
They fell behind 3-0 early in Tuesday’s game vs D.C.. But then the kids from Media went off. They put up 10 runs in the 2nd inning and never looked back. You can check out some of the highlights from that win in the below video.
If you have not been following Media, you are missing out. Not only are they very good, evident from the fact they put up 16 runs, but they are just fun. Not only are they capable of hitting bombs, like Trevor Skowronek did before he strutted around the bases, but they can play small ball too. Charlie Haenn emulated his favorite player Bryson Stott when he got into a two-strike count, but just choked up on the bat and slapped a hit the other way. You know Phillies fans, who love to complain about the lack of small ball, will love to see more of that.
Our area has had teams make some noise at the Little League World Series in the past. Toms River represented the Mid-Atlantic region in 2021. And who could forget when Mo’Ne Davis became one of the biggest sports stories in the world after she became the first girl to pitch a shutout at the Little League World Seris with the Taney Dragons? And now Media has a chance to make their own headlines. The Taney Dragons drew huge crowds to Williamsport in 2014. And Media might be doing the same very soon.
Just one more win on Friday, and they will be representing our area at the Little League World Series. But is the world ready to be introduced to Delco? Thankfully Mare of Easttown already did some preliminary work showing people who aren’t from the Greater Philadelphia area what a Delco Accent is.
