Quick Looks at New York and Florida

Team East for the 2012 Little League Softball World Series will be represented by New Hyde Park Little League, New Hyde Park, New York!

New York earned its berth with a championship game 4-1 win over Robbinsville LL of New Jersey, who had narrowly defeated them earlier in pool play at Eastern Region Headquarters, Bristol, CT.

New Hyde Park is located in Nassau County on Long Island, New York.

Team Southeast comes to Portland from Windermere Little League, Windermere, Florida, a small town surrounded by lakes in Central Florida, near Orlando.  Windermere LL, however, is one of the state's biggest, and is actually made up of several small communities: Dr. Phillips, Ocoee, MetroWest, Pine Hills, Rolling Hills, South Lake, Winter Garden + Windermere.

Florida recorded wins over West Virginia in the semifinals, then defending champs North Carolina in the Southeast Regional tournament in Warner Robins, Georgia, to advance to Portland.

Safe travels and good luck to the players and coaches from New York and Florida!
