Little League World Series

Anybody else watching the series?  I watched the Mexico/Venezuela game on Wednesday and couldn't believe the performance that these kids put out.  Mexico won that game and sent Venezuela to the losers bracket game today where they lost to a great Japan team.  Then I watched the California/Pennsylvania game tonight which was another great game.  I haven't seen Montana play yet but they are 3-0 and will play in the US championship game against California and Mexico and Japan for the international championship game.  With out seeing Montana play yet I think that I am going to put my money on Mexico for the over all championship.  Those kids can play ball.   

Watching these kids play their hearts out gives you a new appreciation of the youth of today.

I have watched some of the games and that Penn vs Cali was the best I have seen. These young men have some kind of talent and outstanding gamesmanship(new word I just made up. you are welcome to use it)

Well, both of my teams lost

Well, both of my teams lost today.  California beat Montana and Japan took care of Mexico.  I guess that they were both burnt out from the other games    

So now for the championship between California and Japan I am going to go with the California boys.  I just hope that I didn't just give them the kiss of death.

I've been watching with my oldest son, he plays little league and was picked for the allstar team in his first year playing, his team got knocked out in the state championship. The team that came out of Oregon lost to the Montana team in the regional tournament, Its a lot of fun to watch these young men play, they sure do have a lot of talent.

I was watching some of the highlights and swore that 1st baseman from Mexico needed a shave....lol. I was also duly impressed with the very high level of play, all-around. I think the big determining factor with these teams is who has more than 1 or 2 really good pitchers. They have pretty stringent rules about how much and how often they can pitch and in these series where they play games so close together, pitching can make a huge difference.
