LLWS


Little League World Series.

I love it. It's great. It's...

Well, heck, you could go to the Boston Herald and see what else I have to say about it. I hope you will. Here's a handy link!

Thanks for reading. Soon, with more better stuff.

I watched some of the Little League games on the telly last year but have not found them so far this year. Perhaps it's shown via the internet somewhere? A terrific event for everyone, coaches, officials, parents, players.
My 8 yr old grandson would love to be part of something like this, in fact he is going to try out for the rep team in town in September.

For some reason my television viewing has diminished considerably since last February.
So has my reading.
Blog posts, too, have become a last minute thing ...I mean I'm not putting as much effort into them.
Consequently, I haven't even considered, up to this moment, there is a LLWS.
Those kids are really the cream that rises to the top, not just at athletes, but as people.

The team from my hometown UpNorth came within a game of the LLWS when I was a kid (before it was on TV) (tho we did actually have TVs in those days). Which was very cool.

All the things you say are true, all the sportsmanship, and just the human-ness of it all. Tho I do have a few reservations about putting twelve-year-olds on TV. . .

A friend of mine had twins, and one made the team and one didn't. The one who didn't was so happy for his brother, and the one who did cried that his brother couldn't play with him. You are right about the caliber of the young people who get to this level.

In the past I have come across the LLWS while channel surfing and thought , ”Who would want to watch kids play baseball?” This year, however, a team from Grosse Pointe Woods (I live in Grosse Pointe Park) won the Michigan Championship and then the Great Lakes Championship and so went on to Williamsport. One of the team, Adam Ayrault, is my good friend’s grandson and his father, Andrew Ayrault, is an assistant coach and played high school basketball with my son. I watched and recorded and couldn’t take my eyes off these kids who showed such poise and sportsmanship. Most enjoyable.

I caught a few games ~ while channel surfing ~ and am always impressed. Our New Mexico team didn't make it to Williamsport, but that's the way it goes.
My cousin works for the Little League in Williamsport, and loves her job! Must be really exciting when the teams are there playing.

I didn't watch it - too busy watching hurricane news! - but I heard a team from Texas is moving on. Yay!
