IT'S BEEN 50 YEARS !!



Since a Pennsylvania team has won  this series.
 





They did it in front of a record 45,000 + crowd.

 

The pitching was phenomenal by all teams.
It's hard to believe that these kids are just twelve years old.
The sportsmanship and mutual support was the best.
There were several heroes but they all deserve
 a well earned round of applause.



The pitcher Cole Wagner is probably already breaking hearts.
What a cutie !

Sunday they played Japan ( 3 times world champs) for 
the World  Championship...
and lost 18-11
After the first inning it was looking good.
We were ahead 10-1 but only scored one run after that.
Still, they should be proud.
US Champs is nothing to sneeze at.

Yes, definitely should be proud! What great kids and sportsmanship. The adult athletes sure could learn something from these kids. :)

Baseball is about as foreign to me as cricket seems to be to most people from the US!

I have no idea of how the scores work, or even how the games are won and lost! But, national champs translates into any language.

They are definitely a team to be proud of. They are so young to be so talented too.
