Love sitting with my kids and watching these games!
These kids give up so much to be here.

Welcome to the 2012 Little League Baseball World Series!
What do these kids give up? They want to play baseball, so they play baseball.

yes. Although it can be argued that its more of a US vs the world series as the brackets is made up of US on one side, and the International teams on the other. So the championship game will always be a US team vs. an international team. But hey, the US started this thing back in the 40's.

And aside from the U.S., Taiwan - of all countries - has dominated the LLWS. Although I don't think they've won since the mid-90s.

I have just about as much fun watching these kids play as watching the major league world series. Just to see the pure joy of the game and the heartbreak of it is a reminder of what the game can be. There are some phenomenal plays and some great back-stories here. How 'bout the first African team to compete? The Japanese team looks incredible--a lot of talent. And who knows what future major leaguer we're seeing?

And one more thing...go Goodlettsville, TN!

Their whole summer vacation is gone
Between Practices and tournaments you get no time for yourself!
Is it choice? Yes!
My Sons team went pretty far a couple of years ago.
He was almost happy when they lost their final game.
He got to enjoy the rest of his summer vacation.
