Mary Hamilton sends us these photos from the Little League World Series. Here is an update with some of the adventures that they had on the trip:
We saw the International championship between Japan and Panama. Japan won the International division. Then we saw the US championship between West (Petaluma, Ca) and Southeast (Goodlettsville, Tenn) divisions. (Roanoke County teams feed into the Southeast Division.) It was an unbelievable game! California was down by 10 runs in the 6th inning and they scored 10 runs to stay alive! The game went into an extra inning and the Southeast scored 9 runs and won the game. It was so exciting. Tickets are free to all the games. We sat on the grassy terrace in the outfield and the view was great.
There is a family fun tent where there are games and baseball pins. Jared Fogle from Subway was there signing autographs. The boys loved trading pins. There are some very serious traders and a lot of kids just trading for fun. Our boys came home with pins from all of the United States plus Canada, Austria and Japan.
There was also a Little League Challenger game in the morning, which was very inspiring.
The boys in the pictures are Jason Hamilton, son of Gregory and Mary Hamilton, and Hayes Bartlett, son of Ed and Sara Bartlett.
