Epic. Love it. The way the game should be taught and played. Congrats the RI team.

That was incredible to watch last night and brought tears to my eyes (and tears down my wife's face!) The most enjoyable part of watching the LLWS to me has been the sportsmanship and kindness I've seen. Coaches who are class acts and know how to build self esteem and not crush it. I know the term "have fun" is a cliche but to see the looks on these kids faces is priceless. I wish every youth Coach and baseball parent in the country watches this LLWS and learns from it. There's a right way to do things and a wrong way. 7,200 teams or so and these coaches and players have reached the elite few in the tournament. No yelling or belittling positional players or pitchers for making mistakes. Hey baseball youth coaches in America....the NICE GUY freakin approach does work!!!

Congrats to the RI coach!  That is the way to handle it!

Well if that doesn't bring a tear to your eye, I'm not sure I want you coaching my kids. :-)  That's it right there.  That's why I reinforce/support sports in my house.  Win or lose, walk away knowing that you performed to the best of your ability, and no one will ever be able to take it away from you.  Great stuff!
