2006 CIAC CLASS LL STATE CHAMPIONSHIP


Amity left-hander Max Russell pitched and batted his team to the CIAC Class LL State Championship at Yale Field with a 3-2  win over Bristol Central.  The ace pitcher of the state’s top-ranked team pitched his way out of jams in three different innings and knocked in the game’s first run in the fourth inning to lead the Spartans to their first state title championship after two runner up finishes. The loss ended a 10-game winning streaker the Rams who finished the season 18-7.
