WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (CBSNewYork) – The dream is over for a special group of little leaguers from New Jersey.
The Elmora Troopers were eliminated from the Little League World Series Wednesday afternoon.
The boys from Elizabeth, New Jersey were defeated by Louisiana 4-1 at Lamade Stadium in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
Although the local baseball stars are going home, their coach Jairo Labrado sent them off with one of the most emotional speeches of this year’s international tournament.
