A group of young baseball players made a trip to the state capitol building last week.

The Newtown American Legion Morrell Smith Post 440 Junior Prep state championship baseball team was welcomed to Harrisburg by State Rep. Perry Warren.

The team ended with a 32-3 overall record and a 22-2 record in the regular season. In the Lower Bucks League, the boys took first place.

“This team posted several dramatic come-from-behind wins, and they attribute their success to the hard work all 15 members of the team put in,” Warren said. “It’s great to see such wonderful teamwork and spirit, and I’m pleased to be able to recognize them in the House chamber. Congratulations to the team, coaches and those who supported them.”

The boy got photos with Warren and State Rep. Scott Petri.
