A little perspective from Mark
The 1957 Glen Oaks All Stars played against the best players of ALL the little leagues in the city of Maracaibo drawing from a population of about 390, 000 people versus Glen Oaks Little League that had a population pool of maybe 20,000 people. This is confirmed by the fact that later Little League World Series championship Maracaibo teams were represented by specific named little leagues. The 1957 Glen Oaks All Stars should be given more credit as to their excellence within this context. Submitted by Mark Eisenberg
