Dreaming of Williamsport

Three CM eighth grade baseball players have found themselves dreaming of a World Series title all summer.

Danny Flahive '13, Brendan MacDonald '13, and Matthew Fennell '13 have been riding the wave of momentum that started this spring when their Parkway Little League team, the National, won it all and entered the summer All-Star Season with hopes high. After a dominant 10-0 summer season the National entered the state Little League tournament last week. But Peabody and Middleboro were no match for them and on Monday, July 28th, they took home the state title.
Parkway Little League Coach John Picarello singled out Flahive for his success in the closing inning in the state championship game, where Flahive struck out the last two batters to shut down the Middleboro offense. "Flahive came on when the pressure was on him and he did it for the all-stars..." Picarello told the West Roxbury Transcript on Monday.

The trio of CM Knights play a round-robin tournament in Bristol, CT over the course of the coming week against Vermont, Maine, Connecticut, and New Hampshire. The Wednesday game against Connecticut will be televised live on NESN.

If Parkway National wins the New England regional tournament, they will be heading to Williamsport to play for a National title. "I think we'll win it all," the National's left-fielder MacDonald told the West Roxbury Transcript.

"It's exciting," said Fennell's mother, Jane, before the opening game on August 1. "It's a lot of driving, but this takes precedent! It's a once in a lifetime experience."
