This Jersey Girl Has Got the Right Stuff

A New Jersey Little League team won the state title thanks to the heroics of a girl on the team who had been heckled earlier in the contest.

She was actually jeered until she showed them what she had.

Kayla Roncin, 12, is the breakout player on the Little League team from Toms River that recently won the state title and advanced to the regional tournament in Connecticut for the right to compete in the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

According to

Kayla certainly did her part in the state title-clinching game, blasting a two-run home run to snap a tie (which you can see above) and throwing one pitch to end the nail-biting contest by retiring the opposing team’s big hitter with the bases loaded and Toms River clinging to a 7-6 lead (which you can see below).

“It felt great just to get a hit,” she said. I have been in a slump during the whole tournament and I really wanted to help the team.”

My father was a Minor League pitcher and he would have been over the moon if either of his daughters could play sports like this little kid.

Let’s hear it for this talented young woman!
