Verona has lots of very talented young baseball players. None of them are  competing in the Little League World Series, but there is a Verona connection to this afternoon’s game.

D.J. Pico is a centerfielder for the Par-Troy East Little League. His mom, Danielle Pico, teaches geometry and algebra at Verona High School, and her VHS colleagues are planning to cheer the game on television.

This is the World Series debut of the Par-Troy team, which has been on a tear: The New Jersey state champion, it  has a 6-0 record for elimination games this summer. Its opponent this afternoon is a team from San Antonio, Texas.
