- P.J. Hughes hit a dramatic pinch-hit, walk-off home run to lead off the bottom of the seventh inning to help the Washington Pony All-Star team pull within one win of advancing to the 1998 Pony League World Series championship game with a 3-2 win over Pasadena, Texas. It was Hughes’ first at bat of the series. His home run caused the monstrous crowd at Lew Hays Pony Field to erupt in celebration. It was one of the most dramatic and euphoric finishes in PLWS history.
