The Butler did it for EG-C LL - again

East Greenbush/Castleton's Anthony Butler celebrates going from first to third safely in front of Twin Town third baseman Sal Pezzolla during third inning of District 14 Little League baseball Championship action Thursday July 15, 2010 at East Greenbush.

CHATHAM — Pressure situations do not seem to bother East Greenbush-Castleton 11-12-year-old Little League slugger Anthony Butler. In fact, he seems to thrive on them.

With Tuesday’s Region 3 championship game against Rotterdam hanging in the balance, Butler blasted a two-run homer to snap a 7-7 tie, then slammed the door shut on a late rally in the bottom of the sixth to propel East Greenbush to a 9-8 victory and a berth in the New York State Championship Tournament.

Tuesday’s clutch play was nothing new for Butler, whose walk-off home run a year earlier against Colonie put the East Greenbush 11-year-old All-Stars into the state tournament.

“I normally come up big in big situations,” Butler said.

Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due
to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against
