Thomaston Juniors Make Fall Debut

FALL DELIVERY - Thomaston’s Corbin Dilllane fires a pitch during Little League Juniors game at Municipal Stadium.

THOMASTON - The Thomaston Little League Juniors/Roost Power Sports team made it’s fall baseball debut against the Overlook Black Sox at Municipal Stadium in Waterbury on September 29. “It was a great day to play baseball and a great atmosphere,” said team coach Richard Kelly, who is joined by Cliff Brammer and James Dillane.

Leading the way for Thomaston were Mylan Grant with two hits; weighing in with hits were Jmmy Bothroyd, Aidan Kelly, and Corbin Dillane, who also pitched four solid innings.

“Hopefully as the season moves along, the kids will make a run at the playoffs as they did in spring,” said Kelly.

On the suuny, warm afternoon, it was easy to see that the players were having a good time; although this was the first full weekend of autumn, there was an unmistakable scent of summer in the air.

“Yes it did feel like that,” said Kelly. “The kids had a great time just being on this field, win or lose, although they made good effort they fell short of winning.

Thomaston has four upcoming home games at Thomaston High School; they will take place on October 5, 6, 12, and 13 with first pitches scheduled for 3 p.m.
