CAPE CORAL, Fla. – A local softball team played its way into history with a win at the Senior League World Series Championship in Lower Sussex, Delaware.

Die-hard fans watched from the edge of their seats, eyes glued to the screens at a Stevie Tomato’s watch party.

The teens on Cape Coral’s softball team have been undefeated since May. They wrapped up their season going 7-0 in the World Series, beating a Canadian team with a 3-0 victory in seven innings to claim the title. They also beat teams from the Asian-Pacific, Central United States, Western United States, and Europe-Africa regions.

Their win was no small feat, said Dan Mills, vice president of Greater Fort Myers Little League Softball.

“To get to this point is so hard. I mean, people don’t understand that in a little league tournament your margin for error is so slim. You lose one game and you’re done. I mean to go two months without losing a game to get to this point is unbelievable,” he said.

The Cape Coral players have participated in the sport for years.

“It’s unbelievable. I mean, these girls have played in the league since they were 7-8 years old,” he said. “The amount of work and the practice and the games and the journey they made to get to this point is truly remarkable.”

The team received a warm welcome from fans and loved ones Monday.
