Late yesterday afternoon, I was covering a welcome-home reception for the Haverstraw Little League softball team, which advanced in the Little League Softball Junior Division World Series all the way to the semifinals. They finished fourth in the series.
The girls were tired because on Sunday, they flew back to Syracuse from Washington State, where the tournament was held, and on Monday, they drove down to Haverstraw to make it to the party. But I think they enjoyed the attention they got.
The celebration attracted some candidates in the fall elections.
Republican Sheriff James Kralik arrived at the pavilion at the Bowline Point Park shortly before his challenger, Democrat Tim OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Neill, who is currently a Stony Point Town Board member. Republican County District Attorney Michael Bongiorno and his challenger, Democrat Tom Zugibe, also showed up to praise the teamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s achievement.
