Yes, it's that time of year again. Time for the ONLY sporting event of the year that gets me excited.
Little League World Series 2009
They are not quite down to the final 16 U.S. Teams yet, but the final tournaments are under way. Some are being televised.
My old ball park isn't in it again this year like they were last year. That was mega-exciting!!!!
There is (possibly if they win the tournament) a chance of a Little League team just a rock's throw from where I live now making it in though. The final NorthWest is between an Oregon team and a Washington team. The Washington team is Mercer Island Little League (about 10 minute drive from my house). If they make it, I'll have to look out for a send off party so I can go and wish them well.
Once the series itself gets underway (Aug 21-30, 2009), game results can be found here.
Since my old Florida Hometown league isn't in it this year, all I can say is GO MERCER ISLAND!!!!
