Little League World Series Scores
August 21, 2010 by staff
Little League World Series Scores, ESPN cameras have no problem choosing Pearland moms in the crowd in the Little League World Series.
They are dressed in cowboy hats and deep tans, tight tank tops with the names of his children bedazzled on the back, and more shine and sparkle to the front window at IW Marks.
And you thought Dallas was canceled 20 years ago?
The mothers are doing it on purpose. They have their bright bracelets during the regional tournament, so now they use for luck.
Also like to say to people here, “all well dressed in Little League in Texas.”
Friday morning, during the opening ceremony, astronaut Terry Virts presented Little League officials with a patch that stowed away on the space shuttle Endeavour earlier this year.
Virts is a big guy of Little League. IronBirds coached last year at Friendswood Little League.
Virts astronaut Doug Wheelock introduced in the video display gardens. Wheelock, flying 250 miles above Earth on the shuttle, threw the ceremonial first pitch. “Get ready for a fastball to travel 17,500 miles per hour,” he said, tossing a ball into a chamber on board.
Still floating. Any child in Pearland team would have beaten out of the park.
All teams marched separately at the Volunteer Park for the opening ceremony. Each player has a balloon the same color as his uniform.
Only children, after all
Remember this day, children. In 10 years, if you make the majors, will be to an agent, an entourage, family has ever seen and possibly subpoena.
When players throw their balloons, all colors mixed. A recording of It’s a Small World after all player.
Little League president, said the balloons were as players, and “at the end of the week, all of them are mixed, too.”
It was almost like ice cream cheesy Flakes from Kellogg’s, the sponsor of the tournament. And just as sweet. Sometimes we forget, on ESPN and all the commercials, these are just kids playing.
Pearland’s T-shirt, dark blue. Tokyo has the best colors – bright red and white. They resemble the uniforms of Cincinnati Big Red Machine of the ’70s.
Come on, ESPN Deportes Radio announcer update … Pronounced Pear-land, like fruit. No Pearl-land, such as Beaver Cleaver’s mother took over the housework.
Playing in the heat
If you’re wondering what that song they’re playing during the commercials for ESPN’s World Series … is called You And Your Heart, by Jack Johnson. He drew a packed house at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion on Sunday.
Before his first game, Orlando Pearland receiver Jake recited the Little League Pledge. His father, Mike, the team director, said the promise of the coach.
Jake then hit two homers (one that could have made a dent in the space shuttle) and the Pearland All-Stars held on late to beat Minnesota 10-8.
It was a rare score. Minnesota, representing the Midwest, has just three hits in the game, but had spread a lot of walks and a grand slam in eight races.
First Friday of the whole game was played in the afternoon, the hottest day, 92 degrees, no clouds in the sky. Which team do you think had the advantage? Minnesota, where it still snows in May … or Texas, where the weather is 90 degrees sweater?
No beer is sold
Pearland will play Connecticut at 7 pm Sunday on ESPN. Connecticut beat Washington early Friday. Pearland All pitchers are available, as manager of Orlando cleverly kept each less than 35 pitches on Friday.
Little League has strict pitch count limits. If a pitcher throws over 35 pitches, you have to stay off the mound at least two days.
Tickets are free to watch games at Lamade Stadium in Williamsport, so it’s almost like watching a game at Minute Maid Park.
The big difference is, no alcohol is sold at Lamade Stadium. And hot dogs are just and 2.
