Posted on the Octorara Area Little League Facebook timeline:
Congratulations Johnny Cummings! This Sunday, right before the the Phillies game, Johnny will represent Octorara Area Little League (OALL) in the championship round of the Phillies Home Run Derby at Citizens Bank Park.
Johnny placed second in our local event back in May and recently won the Regional Final in Berwyn. Johnny will be one of 8 kids in the 11-12 age-group bracket competing!
Hope the Cummings family knows that the OALL will be cheering for Johnny loud and proud whether we manage to get to the game or are all the way back home in Christiana!
The OALL should be especially proud of our players. This is the second year in a row we have had a finalist in the Championship round of the Home Run Derby. In 2012 Aaron Feld competed at CPB.
