Poquoson Little League: A Glorious Legacy

A Historic Day in Poquoson Little League Baseball

On the illustrious day of May 16, 1958, the town of Poquoson witnessed the dawn of a new era. With a crowd filled with anticipation and excitement, Wayne Martin of the "Yankees" took to the mound. As the ball left his hand, it wasn't just a pitch - it symbolized the commencement of organized Little League Baseball in Poquoson.

Under the watchful guidance of coaches John "Tiny" Firth and Everette "Big Penny" Martin, the Yankees showcased their mettle and determination. Trailing until the bottom of the 5th inning, they rallied with unmatched spirit. With a sensational scoring spree, they notched 7 runs, scripting a dramatic comeback to edge out the Braves with a 7-6 victory. The day was made even more memorable as Wayne Martin, who had started the game with that iconic pitch, emerged as the winning pitcher.

This remarkable event stands as a testament to Poquoson's rich baseball legacy, highlighting the passion and spirit of its players and community. A moment etched in history, reminding us of the beginnings of what has now become a cherished tradition.
