This marks the 5th time in 9 years and 3rd time in 4 years that Robbinsville Softball has represented the East in the LLWS. Truly an amazing accomplishment.
World Series Pedigree
How has Robbinsville done in the World Series?
To appreciate what an accomplishment this is, we need to understand the road they traveled. Little League starts with local district tournaments in which NJ has 20 districts – Robbinsville is in District 12. The winners of these District tournaments move on to sectionals where they play other NJ District winners.
Robbinsville Softball – A Winning Formula
The journey started June 23rd and the girls have played 15 games thus far. However, the amount of practice hours the girls have put in is another story.
While the water in Robbinsville is top notch, that is not what is producing these results. Drive by Tantum Park field in June and July and you will undoubtedly see the girls from “R-Ville” practicing long and hard.
So, hard work and focus is certainly the formula for success for Robbinsville Softball. Scott Veisz, a coach on the 2014 World Series team and VP of Softball for Robbinsville Little League, expands on that formula.
“We are so proud of our girls. Their success is the result of a community, league, parents, coaches and players commitment to embracing the joy of softball in Robbinsville. The efforts so many people put into this program to help the girls reach their potential is really amazing.” – Scott Veisz
A Strong Foundation
Finally, the teams all have amazing support systems surrounding them.
