Little League team honors boys hit by train

Little League players honored two teens Sunday as one laid in a coma and the other's relatives worked out funeral plans.

Christopher Cipolli, 15, remains in critical but stable condition at Westchester Medical Center. Doctors say it's too soon to tell if he'll survive. His friend, 15-year-old Connor Corish, died Saturday. A NJ Transit train hit the boys Friday as they walked on the tracks between Spring Valley and Nanuet.

Flags hung at half-staff at the Little League field. Rich Cipolli, the victim's father, urged the team that he coaches to play after the Saturday game was canceled. Players and parents wore yellow ribbons and the Little Leaguers signed their game ball for the victim.

Both Cipolli and Corish were athletes from the time they were little.
