I always enjoy watching the Little League World Series, but this year was especially fun to watch! I love seeing 12 year old boys play the game with so much emotion and energy. That truly is the game in it’s purest form!
I enjoy watching professional sports, but I’ve always enjoyed amateur sports more. I’m a huge college basketball and football fan, but never have really gotten into NFL or NBA. It doesn’t mean that anything is wrong with either of those leagues, and there is no doubt that they both contain better athletes. However, watching amateurs compete for a championship is just special to me…thats why I coach college baseball!
It blows my mind that some 12 year olds had the opportunity to play in front of as many as 40,000 fans! That shows exactly how much everyone in this country loves the LLWS. For reference, in 2007 when my team played in the College World Series, we averaged about 25,000 fans. What an awesome experience for them!
I’d like to congratulate all of the participants in the LLWS from all over the world, but especially to this year’s champions, Team California! USA!
