The many loyal fans of the Sharks traveled to Oyster Bay to see their favorite team go for the title. The offense was led by James Prado setting the table in the leadoff spot going 2-3 with a run scored and two stolen bases. The game was knotted at all zeros in the bottom of the fourth inning with two outs when Ryan Wasserman drove in James with a hard single to right. In the fifth inning the Sharks added a second run when Kenny Hirschfeld led off with a single, stole second and then third. Anthony Agerenza then followed with a single to drive him in. That was all the runs the Shark pitchers would need on this day as the capacity-filled crowd saw spectacular pitching. The Shark pitchers held the opposing team to just three hits and no runs over seven innings. Jimmy “Jimbo” Weedon took the hill to start the game and pitched four strong innings. Brandon Colon than came in for a scoreless fifth inning and Ryan “The Ice Man” Wasserman pitched the final two innings to close out the championship. The defense played a great game as well. The play of the game happened in the final inning with a runner on and only one out when Jimmy Weedon, now playing the hot corner, made a fantastic grab on a scorched line drive off the bat of a Hellcat slugger. Wow, what a play! The other team was shocked in amazement and the Sharks fans went wild. The Sharks played like champions well beyond their years.

The team became the state champs on July 16, defeating Half Hollow Hills 10-2. Asked whether he was confident the team would win the state championship, coach Tom Donnelly replied, “We lost in the semifinals at the N.Y. State tournament last year as 11-year-olds playing in the 12-year-old division and we won the N.Y. State tournament as 10-years-olds, so we were confident but we knew Staten Island and Half Hollow Hills would be very tough games.”
