The St. Maarten Little League National Junior League Team and delegation consisting of players, coaching staff, umpire and parents arrived home on Monday night to the welcome applause and greetings of congratulations from family members, well wishers and representatives of the St. Maarten Little League. Also on hand to welcome the players were members of the organization The Voice of Our Children.
The players and delegates were very excited as they returned from competing in the recently held Latin America and Caribbean Junior League championship in Abaco Bahamas in which 10 teams took part. St. Maarten went 2-2, which the lost of the 4th game, squeezed the team out of advancing to the semi-finals. The players performed exceedingly well and must be commended.
