Helping to lead the Windermere Little League Nationals to a District 14 Juniors (ages 13-14) Top Team Championship earlier this month was Carson Lewis, a slugging infielder who hit five home runs over the course of the spring season while maintaining a .614 batting average. Lewis is now gearing up for the District 14 Juniors All-Stars Tournament, set to begin later this month.

In order to win the Top Team tournament, you had to beat the other team from Windermere Little League — which had defeated you earlier in the season — in the championship game. What was that like? 

It was just cool, because we (finally) beat them. But we know all of them, so we get along.


Were you surprised by the team’s success in the tournament?

I wasn’t surprised. We have really good players on our team.

What was something you worked to improve at this spring?

Hitting to the opposite field.


Which position on the field do you like playing the most?

I like playing third base because the balls get hit really hard over there.


What do you think will be the key for your All-Stars team at Windermere Little League to be successful?

We can’t have any errors.


Who is your favorite professional baseball player and why?

Probably David Wright (of the New York Mets) because he plays third base, too.


Which game of the Nationals this spring was the most memorable?

The championship game of Top Team, because I pitched the whole game. I pitched all seven innings and I don’t usually pitch that long. I had to focus on throwing strikes and not try to throw so hard.


Was it fun pitching against your friends on the other Windermere Little League Juniors team?

Yeah, because you just want to get them out.


In school, what is your favorite subject?

History. I like learning about the past.


Which non-baseball activity are you looking forward to the most this summer?

I’m looking forward to going out on the lake.


What’s your favorite show to watch on television?

“The Flash.” I like it because it has science in it.
