FAIRFIELD, Conn. — Break out the Cracker Jack.

You’ve got two days to prepare for Fairfield American’s first game in the Little League World Series.

Connecticut’s boys of summer go face-to-face with the Mid-Atlantic champs, Holbrook Little League out of Jackson, N.J., at 3 p.m., Thursday on ESPN.

The Fairfield team is coming off a stunning 10-0 win over Maine to clinch the New England championship. That game sent Fairfield to Williamsport, Penn., for the third time in history, a Connecticut first.

At 18-0, Fairfield American is undefeated in tournament play this season.

“Many of these players are regular customers at our shop,” the ice cream and candy mecca announced on Facebook. “WIN FAIRFIELD AMERICAN WIN!!!!”
