2015 Is The 50th Anniversary of the Windsor Locks Little League World Championship
2015 is indeed a year to celebrate! It is the 50th anniversary of Windsor Locks winning the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA.
Here is rare footage of the most important at bat in Windsor Locks History. Dale Misiek at the plate with a man on and Windsor Locks down 1 – 0. This is from ABC Wide World of Sports with Jim McKay announcing and Jackie Robinson (yes, that Jackie Robinson) on commentary. Happy New Year!
And here is the moment of victory. Clip begins with 1 out in bottom of sixth inning with two strikes on the batter from Stoney Creek, Canada. Windsor Locks is up 3 to one and pitcher Mike Roche for Windsor Locks is on the mound and in the groove. The late great Bob O’Connor comes out to confer with Roche prior to facing the final batter.
