See, this is why I was okay with JRW beating the Taney Dragons.

Chicago won! #JRW's "National treasures" on A1 of Sunday's @chicagotribune. Very cool: pic.twitter.com/kZRFhaZVzn — Rich Campbell (@Rich_Campbell) August 24, 2014
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, […]
People hoping to get tickets for tonight's Philly v. Las Vegas game are wrapping around Lamade Stadium #llws #taney pic.twitter.com/dcSfbOS0S2 — Valerie Tysanner (@valerietysanner) August 20, 2014 Great story about the history of the Taney Little League…
Pretty sure Mo’Ne is the first Little Leaguer to make the cover of Sports Illustrated — but with that comes the hex!

The shittier the news gets, the more I love baseball. I watched another great game in the Little League World Series last night: Chicago’s Jackie Robinson West vs. Rhode Island’s Cumberland Americans. 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 […]
