On Monday, Aug. 27, now called Westport Little League Day, Westport held a parade to celebrate the ten and eleven year old softball state champions and the nation’s second-ranked 12U baseball champions. First, the Little League teams made their way through downtown. Following this, the procession moved to the Levitt Pavillion. On stage, many political figures, including First Selectman Gordon Joseloff, Senators Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal, and Congressman Jim Himes, spoke in admiration of both of the teams.
