Here at XPN we’re all pretty excited for Philly’s Taney Dragons Little League baseball team who are playing in the Mid-Atlantic regional championship game against Delaware tonight at 6PM. The game will be on EPSN 2. Taney is one win away, and will be the qualifying game to play in the Little League baseball World Series in Williamsport.
UPDATE: Tanney won the Mid-Atlantic championship game, 8-0! Now moving onto the opening round of the Series at Lamade Stadium in Williamsport, PA, their first game is on Friday Aug 15th at 3pm. Full schedule here
One of the players on the little league baseball team is Tai Shanahan, the son of WXPN’s Associate General Manager Quyen Shanahan. Taney has gotten some fantastic press in their exciting march towards the little league championship game. While not the big leagues, where the players walk up to bat to a song of their choice, the team has put together a wish list playlist of songs that each player would walk up to if the music were to be blasted out of the stadium speakers. Check out the list below, from the little league players, and the coaches.
