Three days after successfully closing out Winter Garden Little League’s second game of the District 14 Juniors (13- and 14-year-old) All-Stars Tournament, Brandon Correia got the start against for WGLL in the district championship July 5 against Windermere.
Overcoming a slow start in the first that saw him surrender two runs, Correia was lights out through the fifth inning before things got hairy in a wild sixth inning for both teams. Winter Garden ultimately finished as district runner-up after the 11-8 loss to Windermere, but Correia showed grit on the mound throughout the tournament.
(Windermere) started out very strong, but through those five innings, I held them tight. … I just had to try and find the umpire’s strike zone and have my command on pitches.
I just mix it up and I locate my pitches pretty good, I’d say.
Oh yeah, I would never have a different group of guys — I was very happy with how we played.
The game we played at Windermere (Little League), and I pitched and shut out the Nationals.
I like playing shortstop, because that’s my favorite player’s position, and I feel like I play my best there, besides pitching.
Yankee Stadium. It’s the home of my favorite team, and I’ve just always wanted to go there.
I’d say Akash Shah. He’s already hit the warning track and come very close (to a home run).
Math. I excel in it, and it’s just probably the easiest for me.
I would like to either play Major League Baseball or be in the United States Coast Guard. I’ve always liked boating all my life, and it’s just a fun thing to do, I think.
Playing outside with my friends, playing backyard football.
“Finding Dory.” I saw that with my sister and brother.
