    Re: Urbandale Little League Thread

    Glad to post in here. I have umpired all these kids since they were 7. They are very talented and deserve all the credit (if not more) that they are receiving. In my opinion there is no better place to play Little League than Urbandale in central Iowa. Year in and year out they (the league as a whole) are competitive, have OUTSTANDING coaching, and overall are run excellently.
    Urbandale Little League already has a World Series Championship (2005 Senior League) and I hope these boys can add to the list. Whatever the outcome is, it is still a tremendous accomplishment to be there. Good luck boys, you have the whole state behind your back!

    Urbandale has a great high school coach too as I've had the opportunity to play for him a few times.

    Can't believe the size of that kid on Georgia. 5'11 210 at 12? Wow.

    Re: Urbandale Little League Thread

    I love the rep for Urbandale. I knew most of the kids on the 2005 World Series team, they were pretty much all in my class. My brother in law coaches a few of these kids in AAU basketball too.

    I was just wondering - he was my P.E. teacher in elementary school. I thought it was weird that he coached Urbandale, but taught in the West Des Moines School District.

    You'll see that a lot. There was a long standing baseball and basketball coach at Ames that taught in the Des Moines school district for 30 years.

    I don't suppose this is on the radio at all? I've got in on ESPN right now, but I'm going to go for a walk and would like to keep following it...

    Re: Urbandale Little League Thread

    Just curious, who did Urbandale beat in Indianapolis to get this far? I have a friend (oddly enough, a Drake alum) whose son played for Michigan, but I couldn't find the overall Indianapolis results anywhere.
