    games on at 1,3,5,7pm espn & deuce. double elimination. 8 US teams will play for the national championship. 8 world teams will play for their championship. then the world will meet our national champion for the world series championship. this is almost as good as march madness. check it out, very fast paced, quick moving games & all the coaches are miked up for some good game coaching with the kids. espn does a great job of telling all the interesting backstories of each team.

    there are some 6'2 kids & some 4'5 kids on the same teams. the best part is, they are not all star teams. they are regular teams that participated in their hometown leagues & advanced all the way through their regionals. if you think LL world series is boring, you haven't watched & you might have rocks in your head.
