Little League season may be over but some Shelburne Little League players, coaches and family members managed to get in field trips in the final days of summer that were all about the big leagues.

Top: The Shelburne Storm Little League baseball team on Aug. 26 visited the NESN TV studio as guests for “NESN Clubhouse,” the network’s Red Sox pre-game show for kids. The 9- and 10-year-olds met Red Sox mascot Wally the Green Monster and NESN’s hosts T.J. Hourigan and Tony Fandozzi. The team won this opportunity in the NESN Clubhouse Sweepstakes.
