HAMILTON--Hamilton's West Side Little League All-Stars, runners-up of the Little League World Series, arrived in Hamilton Monday, and were greeted by friends, family, and fans alike. The team and their families gathered at Garfield Middle School for photos and interviews with local media before climbing in their cars and heading over to the West Side Little League complex on Eaton Avenue under a police escort provided by Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones. Fans cheered when the boys arrived at the ballfields, hopped out of their cars, and started signing autographs for younger kids. The City of Hamilton is planning an official welcome home celebration Thursday, beginning with a parade from West Side Little League to Marcum Park, where a short program will be held. The parade gets underway at 7:00pm.
