    The 2009 Mid-Atlantic Little League Champions from Staten Island, New York, are introduced during the opening ceremony at the Little League Baseball World Series.

    It was the end of the road for the South Shore All Stars. The team lost to Texas 4-1 in the world series' semifinals.

    The team earned the right to be in the U.S. semi-final game by beating a squad from Urbandale, Iowa on Monday 8 to 3.

    Texas will head to the World Series, which is already taking place with other international squads.

    On Wednesday Mexico beat Japan 6-0 to advance in the competition.

    In 2006, the Mid-Island All-Star squad from Staten Island reached the World Series. But they lost three straight games and eliminated.
