For the second straight year, Brooklawn brings home national championship

BROOKLAWN — Late Wednesday morning, the Brooklawn American Legion team brought its fourth national championship trophy back to town as the team arrived from Shelby, N.C.

The players streamed out of the bus as family, friends and fans applauded the national champs as they arrived back in town.

The Brookers became the first team in 40 years to win back-to-back American Legion World Series titles. The last time it happened was 1973-74 when a team from Puerto Rico pulled off the repeat. Brooklawn is just the fifth team to win back-to-back championships in American Legion World Series history, which dates back to 1926.

Below you'll find a few videos of the 2014 American Legion World Series champions as they arrived home earlier today after their nine-hour bus ride from the southwestern portion of North Carolina.

We also caught up with pitching coach Josh Copskey, catcher Tre Todd and tournament MVP Sean Breen and they talked about the excitement of winning a second-straight title.
