The Chestnut Hill Dodgers came back from a nearly no-win season to win the Little League championship for 10-12 year olds. 

 

“The kids came alive,” said Rob Remus, a parent of one of the players. 

“We were serious underdogs,” he added. 

Throughout the course of the playoff season, the team scored 57 runs and won four games in a row after coming into the post-season in last place.
