All players received medals and applause, as one by one, they paraded before excited parents and family members, to bask in the glow of another Little League season coming to an end.

Following the dissemination of metals, special recognition was given to Springer Little League team member, Elijah Roberts, for earning the most money selling Krispy Kreme donuts for the league’s annual fund-raiser.
