The Road to Kalamazoo

Posted by Trish18 Aug 29, 2006

 

It's around 3:30 in the morning and we are heading West on the Ohio Turnpike and still about 3 hours from home. Isn't technology great? I am able to surf the net while driving down the highway! (actually my wife Holly is doing the typing - I'm just dictating. She tends to get cranky when I take my eyes off the road to see what site she is on)

 

 

 

Let me begin by explaining that we had big plans for the Championship game.  Our friend Larry Brewer was scheduled to umpire in the game and we were more than ready to enjoy a day at the ballpark and cheer him on.  However as you all know by now things did NOT go as planned.  After several weather delays and then the[ final decision to postpone the game|http://active.typepad.com/llbworldseries/2006/08/rain_rain_go_aw.html] until tomorrow night at 8 pm we decided to pack it in and head home to Michigan.

[http://active.typepad.com/.shared/image.html?/photos/uncategorized/georgia.jpg] It has been a very exciting and entertaining year for Little League Baseball. What a series! The Southeast team became the new world champs winning the 60th Little League World Series in a 2-1 upset over Japan.

 

 

 

In the third inning, Cody Walker hit a 2-run home run for the U.S. champions, Columbus Nothern Little League (Columbus, Georgia).  Pitcher Kyle Carter contributed greatly to the win, stricking out 11.
