It's hard to believe I haven't gotten this one up yet, but the LLWS has already begun in Williamsport!

Hawaii is looking terrific! They beat New York yesterday with a combined no hitter!

I bet you Dodger ladies knew this, but Rachel Robinson and former president George W. Bush were at the unveiling of a statue in Williamsport today. Article from Little League

I actually only noticed that after the fact, but noted that it rained yesterday so no games were played. But thanks for posting!

Now we have a real showdown between West and Southeast coming up! The last 2 teams standing for the U.S. and both are 3-0. They will meet on Thursday. U.S. championship game will be played Saturday.

I had a day off today, at home, and so watched several innings of a few of the games. Most of the results today were blowout wins but I am hoping for Hawaii to cruise tomorrow.

The first couple of days I was confused because I kept reading "Metro" region and didn't remember ever seeing that before. It's a newly created region that split off from Mid-Atlantic.

I know, I thought to myself how could a team from Long Island not be in Mid-Atlantic until I read that!

It looks like we have ourselves a U.S. final coming up between West and Southeast on Saturday! Hawaii had just walloped Tennessee, 13-0, yesterday, so the rematch will probably be much closer. But, go West!

I was tempted to host a little get together tomorrow for this but Raul said no! Exclamation We have a big party to attend tomorrow night and he thinks I might put myself out too much. He may be right, Lol. I sure am looking forward to watching it, though.

I guess we all know Hawaii dominated the U.S. championship but now the LL title game is being played! Bring it on home, West!

They have been saying one of the most dominating performances by a team ever in Williamsport. Yes, congratulations to Hawaii.
