World Series is ON - UPDATE!!!
« on: July 13, 2006, 10:31:53 AM »
Okay, some time ago, I posted about my son's team going to the Little League World Series.  The first two days they played pool rounds for seeding.  They lost their first game, then won their second in the pool round.  These games really meant nothing other than seeding for the final rounds.

Yesterday, they opened the championship round with a pounding of a team from south Texas.  D (my son) hit the first pitch one hop over the left field fence and they never looked back en route to a 14-1 drubbing.  Interestingly enough, the coach told me that when D has led off the game with a hit, the team is 31-0.  He is having an excellent tournament thus far, and they really have a shot, but there are some very good teams here.

I have been doing the commute to see as many games as I can (about a 3 1/2 hour drive one way).  Wish I could just drop all my commitments here for a week, but hey. My ass is sore, but it is well worth it.

I will keep you all posted..

John

Wish I were there to share the sore ass with you hun, but you know, sitting on a couch now sounds mighty fine to me. :D

When you talk to D, tell him I'm cheering him and the team on.  They have they're own cheerleading squad right in Brooklyn, NY.  "Goooooo D and Marlins!!!"

Well, they played the number one team from Nebraska today (#2 seed in the tournament).  It was nip and tuck the whole game, when in the bottom of the seventh, D (bet you think I am making this up) hit a 3 run triple to win the game 7-5.  The Marlins move on!

WAY COOL!!! John.

Isn't the Little League World Series usually on TV?  Can't find it on my TIVO schedule.  Would be cool to watch.

Hey Shane,

The little league series that they show on TV is normally 12 year olds, and actually a different federation.  He is in the 14U USSA.

Alright!  Go Marlins!

(and might I add, the combo of a Midwest dude with a muscle T,  longneck beer bottle, baseball cap, and bird dog in that avatar earns a major WOOF! from these quarters)*

Dear John and Trish ... Congrats on D doing so well with his baseball, it must be so exciting for you...It sounds like he must be fast, being a leadoff hitter and hitting triples already !!!

I have been a baseball fan for about 40 years now, suffering and some joy from my Mets !!! This year has been good but I always wait for the other shoe to drop...Maybe this is their year !!!

Anyway it sounds like D can already play for the KC Royals !!!

Well, they are still alive.  The lost to a team from Mississippi yesterday after rain delays, then had to play a game at 11pm last night, which they won 8-0.  Today is the real test.  They have to win 3 games in temperatures in excess of 100 degrees to reach the championship game. 

It will be a test of will and stamina...

I am going to pick up Trish at the airport today (YAY!) so I will miss them, but you can bet your ass if they are alive tomorrow, we will be there.

Love you all
John
