    Little League World Series - This Weekend!

     

    Sixteen teams (8 US and 8 International) make it to Williamsport Pa each year, HQ and annual championship tournament location.

     

    ABC and ESPN are covering the Championship Weekend, the last of 10 days of games. It features the International finals and the US finals....the the world championship.....for little league.

     

    Whether you like baseball or not....it's hard not to enjoy watching these 11-13 year olds (boys mainly.....but a few girls). They are very skilled players....such that it is easy to forget that they are just kids....until you see their happy (and determined) faces.

     

    The side stories are as good as the games....which are very good. Lots of great stories of these kids and what they achieve here....including a complete game shut-out....pitched by a girl. Go Mo!

     

    This annual event serves to remind us of the importance of little league baseball. Baseball teaches discipline. It teaches dealing with failure. It teaches how to work as a team to achieve your goals and the importance of the individual contribution. It teaches growth.

     

    And it can be enjoyed throughout your life....from little league....to young adult leagues....to playing with your kids and taking them to their games.....to sharing between grandparents and their loved ones. It's a life-long sport if you let it be.

     

    It reminds us that it touches millions world-wide: players, coaches, families, friends, volunteers that give this gift of love.
