Notable players

  • Jim Barbieri and Boog Powell would become the first ball players to appear in both Little League World Series and Major League World Series. But Barbieri and Powell managed to accomplish the feat in the same years, playing each time for different teams in the 1966 World Series. A member of the Schenectady champion team, Barbieri had one pinch-hit appearance with the Los Angeles Dodgers in that Series, which turned out to be his last big league at-bat. Powell, who played in the 1954 Little League World Series for Lakeland, Florida, was a member of the Baltimore Orioles that swept the Dodgers in the Series, 4–0.[1]
