This kid on the Ohio team has a bat waggle and is late on every pitch. Wonder why. (Might be the same kid who appeared to be a mini-Reuschel on the mound, albeit with sub-Weaver composure, during a pre-Williamsport game.)

Other Ohio player scores points for repping Ryan Freel and wearing glasses from the Devoto Collection.

85-pitch rule is BS.

Insert gay joke in every other ILB thread (that doesn't already have one).

The Walpole, MA team is getting some tv coverage over here. Looks like they had an exciting win the other day.

one of the kids on OH's team said his favorite player is Aaron Cook.

Curacao/Vz game was terrific.

want Tx to go down in flames.

does this seem kinda gross/exploitative to anyone else

cankles, Monday, 27 August 2007 00:01 (twelve years ago) link

Yes -- especially the cameras' adeptness at catching crying kids and then staying on them.

Apparently this ended dramatically.

I guess it shouldn't be on TV, but my childhood neighbors Chula Vista are kicking some serious ass. They had a 6'2" 13-year old!

He got hit in the ear with a 75-mph fastball and basically smirked in the face of the lady who came out to check up on him. They made him stand on one leg, and touch his nose with his eyes closed.

Japan vs. Curacao was EPIC.

umpiring in the LLWS is honestly an insult to baseball

can i ox (J0rdan S.), Monday, 24 August 2009 02:36 (ten years ago) link

curacao was hilarious tho - in the first inning the pitcher gave up 5 ER but 0 hits (like a 12 year old ollie perez) & then that dude smacked a homer and pimped it so hard

i assume chula vista beat peabody? :( peabody is like two towns away from my hometown.

Yeah, it was 3-0 through 5, and then the wheels came off. Final score: 14-0.

Observations:

LLWS Catchers: You don't need to frame every pitch. Srsly, you look like an idiot when you try and pull one back that's a foot outside.

There are some ill Big Sisters with the Staten Island team. It could just be in relation to Iowa.

The cage helmets are gay and sad.

LLWS Players: Come up with your own tics. The Jeter hand at the umpire is gay and sad. Besides, you should be really trying to play like that dashing Jimmy Rollins.

oh my fuckin god someone in the crowd of the japan/mexico game is making the most annoying noise i've ever heard.

My beloved Chula Vista lost to San Antonio last night, where people know what salsa's supposed to taste like.

Don't know how many are aware of it, but potential crazy situation of Tijuana vs. Chula Vista (San Diego suburb right by the border) in the final.

Mets and Phillies will be playing in Williamsport next Sunday night

Syndergaard says he’s excited to play in Williamsport, but hopefully ‘none of those kids have hand, foot, and mouth disease’

The names of the Curacao players in the Little League World Series are lyrical, almost poetic: Deshandro Tromp, Curley Martha, Furgentley Jamanica, Fran-J Confesor, I-Zion Mogen, Pe.son Revierre -- and managed, of course, by Michelangelo Celestina

My friends' nephew went 2/5 last night (2 doubles) but with his speed he stretched 2 infield grounders into forced errors pulling the 1B off the bag. Big win for the underdogs to advance to the (USA) final.

nice!

After golf, we were in a bar watching the Hawaii-Virginia game last night. The guy beside me said he played in the 1952 Series in Williamsport, on a team out of Toronto's High Park. I asked him if played against anyone notable, but he couldn't remember anybody.

clemenza, Thursday, 22 August 2019 20:53 (four weeks ago) link

That was the game I was watching as well.

Thanks! Will print that off and take it to golf next week. I would have seen your friend's nephew...I assume Hawaii went on to win? They had a big lead when I left.

clemenza, Thursday, 22 August 2019 22:02 (four weeks ago) link

Yeah, he bats 4th or 6th depending on who's pitching.

Forgot to mention that he stole home as well:

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Thursday, 22 August 2019 23:08 (four weeks ago) link

I was thinking about the guy from golf, and he has to have that year wrong. If he played in '52 as a 12-year-old, he'd be 79. I golfed with him yesterday--besides the fact that he didn't look 79 (maybe mid-'60s), and besides the fact that he scored well (~40 for 9), he was hitting the ball 200+ off the tee. 79-year-olds don't do that.
