  • Aruba wins the 50th Senior League Baseball World Series

    Small island, big heart.

    "Aruba South L.L., of San Nicolas, Aruba, is making its second consecutive appearance in the World Series after capturing the Latin America regional title with a 5-2 win over Summit Hills Alta-Mira L.L., of San Juan, Puerto Rico, on July 24. Aruba was 5-0 in pool play in the regional, held in Oranjestad, Aruba, and 7-0 overall while outscoring opponents 64-5. Four of San Nicolas’s regional wins were by shutout. The average margin of victory for the two-time defending Latin America champs was 8.4 runs."

    "Aruba South Little League, of San Nicolas, Aruba, defeated host Maine District 3 champion Bangor East/West L.L., of Bangor 8-1 Saturday to capture the 50th Senior League Baseball World Series title.

    Aruba’s victory ended the magical run by Maine District 3, which had never won more than a single game in a series since the event moved to Bangor in 2002. The victory also capped a year-long mission by the Arubans to overcome their loss in last year’s semifinal round.

    Shawn Duinkerk got the complete game win, throwing 51 of his 78 pitches for strikes. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound right-hander – who bats left-handed – was 2-for-4 at the plate with a double and three runs batted in. Chadwick Tromp had a two-run home run in the five-run seventh for the Latin America champ."

    Island of only 100K people, 2x consecutive Latin american champs and now world champs. I am so proud of these guys! I needed to share this and tell everyone that anything is possible if u believe and work towards your dreams!

    You know why you guys won right? Cause all of our age-impaired baseball players either died of cirrhosis or get caught using steroids, so they cant play in the senior leagues anyway! :D

    kidding aside, congrats to the Aruban team!
