League History

Midway History

Midway was founded in 1965. The league operated on a number of school and parkland fields before consolidating at the current Forest Oak/YMCA complex.
      Despite being one of the smallest leagues in Delaware's District II, Midway has had many strong all-star teams, especially between 1989 and 2001. Here is a rundown of the top all-star teams in Midway history:
1. The 1996 Senior All-Stars won the District II title, the Delaware State Championship, the Eastern Regional Championship, and finished 3rd in the World Series in Kissimmee, Fla.
2. The 2001 Major All-Stars won the District II title the hard way, winning 7 straight games in the losers bracket, then won the Delaware State Championship, and went 2-2 in the Mid-Atlantic Regionals in Bristol, CT.  In Midway's first game at the Regionals, they faced a team from the Bronx, NY and a pitcher named Danny Almonte.  Almonte threw a perfect game and led his team to the World Series.  It was later determined that Almonte was actually 14 years old and all of their games were forfeited.
3. The 1989 Senior All-Stars won the District II title, the Delaware State Championship, and came in 2nd in the Mid-Atlantic Regionals.
4. The 1994 Junior All-Stars won the District II title and came in second in the Mid-Atlantic Regional.
5. The 1993 Major All-Stars won the District II title but lost in the state finals.
6. The 1995 Junior All-Stars won the District II title but lost in the state finals.
7. Midway won District II 10 year old titles in 1991, 1992, and 2007.
8. Midway won the District II 9 year old title in 1998.
9. Midway won the Brandywine Invitational for 11-12 year olds and the Midway Invitational for 13-14yo in 2001.
10. Midway won the Canal Invitational for 13-14 year olds in 2004.

    Midway has never had a player reach the Major Leagues, but has had several play in the Minor leagues. Bob Lenoir is the only Midway player to be drafted (by the Rangers).  Pete Grasso was the NCAA Division 3 Player of the Year in 2017.  Midway also has had one player in the NHL (Mark Eaton who won a Stanley Cup in 2009 when he played for the Penguins) and one in the NFL (the late Chris Gedney who played for the Bears and the Cards).
