Taney loses to Chicago, 6-5

If we had to lose to any other team, I’m glad it’s Jackie Robinson West. And here’s hoping the other city team kicks Vegas butt, now that I know their wingnut coach told them they were playing “for American freedoms.” It was a great game, and Taney almost pulled it out. But they didn’t. (Sports […]

I knew it wasn’t going to be easy. Mo’Ne was good but she didn’t have her A game. And out of the 13 kids on the Vegas team, 12 of them bat over .300, so Vegas bats got them an early lead. Then they tacked on five insurance runs at the top of the 5th, […]

Cumberland battled JRW’s batting powerhouse until the final out, but couldn’t pull out the winning run. What was really amazing was the speech […]

You need a little good news this Monday, right? Here it is: The Taney Dragons pulled it out in the very last second of last night’s game against Pearland, Texas to win, 7-6. And what a cardiac event this game was! From The Good Phight: It was the bottom of the sixth in Williamsport, in […]

I saw this go past my Twitter stream during the Taney game last night and just had to respond: She's good & all, but why does a girl have to play baseball? Play softball! Good grief! #LLWS @MichaelBerrySho — Carrie Paul (@CarriePaul) August 18, 2014 She describes herself as “Christian, wife, mom, Aggie, conservative, Aggie […]

This is exactly what I hoped would happen. Inner city baseball has been dropping off for years (mostly because equipment is much more expensive than a basketball), but a story like Mo’Ne’s and the Taney Dragons is getting kids interested again. Hallelujah! PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Taney Dragons baseball team is playing their 2nd game […]
