VALHALLA, N.Y. -- As the Little League baseball season is winding down, four boys from Valhalla traveled to Williamsport, Pa. to take part in the Little League World Headquarters All-Star Camp last week.

Max Cavallo, Brody McGuinn, Michael Ferrara and Evan Parker joined other players from across the United States and around the world to play baseball, receive instruction, and participate in cultural exchange for five nights and six days.

While there the boys lived at the International Grove where they stayed in dorms, ate in the dining hall, hung out at the canteen, and played up to three baseball games a day against teams from around the world. They also participated in a home run derby, had their swing and fielding techniques analyzed by cutting edge computer technology called "The Baseball Factory", and played in Lamade and Volunteer Stadiums in front of overflowing crowds.

Besides the boys from Valhalla their team comprised boys from Florida, Virginia, Canada, and Japan. The camp culminated with an All-Stars of the All-Stars game in which Michael Ferrara was selected to play shortstop.

Lisa McGuinn said the four All-Stars thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

"Each boy without hesitation said that they wished the camp was even longer and that they were definitely coming back again next year." McGuinn said. "Fun, sun, baseball, pristine fields and stadiums, and new friends from around the world, what more could you ask for."
