A Staten Island Little League star has ended up on video game cover for XBOX and Playstation.

Angelo Navetta tossed the baseball with his Richmond County teammates.

They are sharp kids who love the game.

All of them are taking pride in a huge milestone for Angelo.

He and a couple of the guys played in Staten Island's South Shore team that made it to the Little League World Series last year, Angelo pitched.

"When I'm on the mound, I feel like nothing can stop me," Navatta said.

That series has now been made into XBOX and Playstation games, and check out that handsome kid on the cover!

It's Angelo on the mound!

"For a kid to get something like that, it's an honor," said Steven Kuhn, the Richmond County coach.

"I'm so proud of him," said R.J. Mastroddi, Angelo's teammate.

Of course, they've been playing the game.

Mike, Angelo's father, remembered signing the waiver to let Little League use the player's picture, but he never imagined his son's picture would be on game boxes that will be sold around the world.

"All the kids deserve this. I'm so proud of him," Mike Navetta said.

All of the boys say they plan to try out for their high school teams.

Remember those faces; they've got their sights set on the majors!
