3 Reasons to Tune into the Little League World Series

 Mo'Ne Davis

 Mo’Ne Davis is the number 1 reason to tune into the famous baseball tournament held in South Williamsport, PA.  Mo’Ne Davis is a female pitcher of the Taney Dragons out of Philadelphia, PA. She is the pride of Philly, and she’s the 17th female player to play in the Little League World Series’ 68 year history.  This past Sunday Mo’Ne led her team to the Little League World Series over a squad out of Delaware by throwing a 3 hitter. The 13-year-old struck out 6 players at bat in the six inning game, while throwing 70 mph fast balls. Final Score of the game 8-0. It was also entertaining to watch this female athlete frustrate some of the male players of the opposing team with her exceptional pitching. Watch one of her strikeouts in the video below.  You can catch Mo’Ne and the Taney Dragons this Friday on ESPN at 3 pm in their first Little League World Series game against South Nashville,Tennessee.

Do you need another reason to tune in? I would be sold after hearing about Mo’Ne Davis.  Reason number 2 to watch this year’s Little League World Series is coming from a positive story out of Chicago Illinois. With all the violence happening in the inner city of Chicago’s neighborhoods, it’s great to hear something positive for a change.  That positive, is Chicago’s Jackie Robinson West All-Stars team. The Jackie Robinson West All-Stars are the first team from the state of Illinois to make the Little League World Series in 3 decades. This team is tough like their hometown of Chicago too.  Jackie Robinson West trailed 5-0 after two innings against the New Albany, Ind. All-Stars this past Saturday. Most teams would have crumbled facing that type of adversity, but not this team from the South Side of Chicago.  Their perseverance paid off in the fifth inning off the Grand Slam home run of teammate Cameron Bufford.  This would be one of two home runs that led Jackie Robinson West to a 12-7 victory and the right to play in the Little League World Series this week. Set your DVR’s for this Thursday as Jackie Robinson West takes on a team out of Lynnwood, Washington in the first round of the Little League World Series on ESPN at 2pm.  Good Luck to the Great Lakes Little League Champions. 

Jackie Robinson West All Stars

Last but not least. Short, but definitely sweet. There’s just something about watching kids play for the love of the game no matter what Little League sport they’re competing in.  As Michael Jordan once said “Love is playing the game as if it’s your last” True love of the game is pure, innocent and deep. Tune in for the Love of the game.
