Clemente WS done, but Mantle and AABC still to come in Waterbury

It is a busy several weeks at the Municipal Stadium baseball complex in Waterbury.
One World Series concluded on Sunday in Waterbury, but there are still two left to be played.
The Roberto Clemente World Series (8U) saw the Bunker Hill Reds reach the championship final. There was also a team from the Baseball Association of Wolcott.

The diamond at the edge of Ray Snyder Sr. Field was very active this week as
Waterbury hosted the Roberto Clemente World Series for the second straight year.
Bunker Hill finished second to the Carolina Rangers of Puerto Rico, and Wolcott took fourth.

Next up is the Mickey Mantle World Series on the big diamond at Municipal Stadium. The CT Outlaws will be the host, and they have players from local high schools on the roster.

The Mickey Mantle World Series starts at this beauty of a ballpark on Wednesday.
The park will also host the AABC World Series in August.
Adam Razza of Holy Cross High School (hometown Watertown) is on the roster, as is Adrian Velez of Waterbury Career Academy (hometown Waterbury). The roster also features Joel Guzman of Sacred Heart (hometown Naugatuck). There are also players from nearby towns such as Watertown, Cheshire, Southington and Seymour.
The Outlaws are one of 12 teams to take part in the Mickey Mantle (16U) World Series, which begins on Wednesday. The World Series will be played at Municipal Stadium, Holy Cross High School and Muzzy Field in Bristol. You can find a listing of the teams on the Mickey Mantle World Series website.

After the Mickey Mantle World Series, the AABC Stan Musial World Series (19U) comes to the Brass City. Four teams from the Connecticut Tri-State Baseball League, including the nearby Wolcott Scrappers, Watertown Blaze and Naugatuck Dogs, all hope to make the trip to Municipal in August. Here's the official website for the series. No teams are listed yet, but they should start popping in soon. Connecticut will determine its two representatives this week (state tournament started Monday). Games will be played from Aug. 4-7, and both Municipal and Fuessenich Park in Torrington will be used (championship at Municipal).
