In its inaugural year, the Long Island Lady Astros from Herricks brought home two championship trophies in National Junior Baseball League’s summer season. The Lady Astros finished atop the 12-U American division with a record of 12-1, and then went on to win the championship series. After winning in the semifinal 4-2 over the Road Warriors they faced Team Nitro in a best-of-three championship series. The Lady Astros easily took the first game over Team Nitro 7-3. The Lady Astros then sealed the championship in an amazing come-from-behind victory over Team Nitro in game 2. Trailing 10-6 with two outs and nobody on base in the bottom of the seventh inning, the Lady Astros mounted a 5-run rally to walk off with an 11-10 win.
