    Little League World Series 2014

    Been a fun year so far.

    Anyone who just watched the South Dakota game, what a tough way to lose. Bad call by an ump cost them a massive comeback.

    That Chicago team is impressive. Reminds me of something from Hardball.

    Kind of a cool fact, people say that the MLB isn't doing enough to get young kids interested in baseball. This team was actually created by an MLB-sponsored project to keep kids off the streets and playing baseball instead. Might be the most talented team EVER.

    I'd love to see them face off against Mo'Ne, and I think there's a good chance of that happening now.

    I'm not sure there is anyone that could hate the LLWS. Baseball pretty much at its finest.

    Re: Little League World Series 2014

    For anyone that didn't get to see the last play of the South Dakota game that eliminated them:

    Down 2 runs, runners on first and second. Full count, kid hits a chopper right up the middle. Centerfielder guns it home, kid from second tripped in between third and home, gets up, runs around the catcher and scores. Umpire calls him out of the baseline, BUT the catcher never had control of the ball, so technically the kid was legal to run around the catcher to get to the plate.

    Goes to review, and the LLWS officials decide that it's a judgement call. Since the ump called the kid out, it stands, and SD lost.

    Poor kids going to remember that forever, and it really wasn't even his fault. Just a bad call by the ump. And I feel bad for the ump, because he was in a tough position to make the call as is.

    People here in Chicago are paying more attention to this Little League team than the Cubs or Sox. They are fun to watch.

    Why is a 13 year girl still playing baseball?

    Yeah...her fastball isn't even what impresses me. Her curveball is crazy.

    It'll be interesting to see how she transitions into softball. Two completely different motions.

    This Canada v. Venezuela game opened up at Venezuela -1.5. Was down to a pick me by first pitch. Crazy.

    I agree with this. I like playing baseball, but I don't watch MLB at all anymore (used to be a die hard Cubs fan, now sadly I'm a fair weather fan). But LLWS is baseball at it's best. So much emotion in it, great to watch.

    You know, if she cuts her hair, I can definitely see a little Britney Griner in her.

    The LLWS itself, no.

    The heavy commercialization of it, yes.
