So Much Little League, So Little Time!

I have been up at Alpenrose Stadium this week for the Little League Softball World Series and enjoying watching and talking with the girls and their fans from all over the world. Portland is truly lucky to host this event, though it takes a lot more than luck to put it together.

In the meantime, the local Jr. LL Baseball team from Murrayhill LL lost a nail-biter yesterday morning in the championship game of the Western Regional. Hawaii (Pearl City LL) defeated Oregon in ten innings, 2-1. The local CBS affiliate, KOIN, featured the game in their evening newscast, as well as weaving in the action in the Softball World Series. Hawaii heads to Taylor, Michigan, for the Junior Little League Baseball World Series.

In the Western Regional for Little League Baseball (11/12 year olds), our local District and State winner Lake Oswego LL has finished Pool Play down in San Bernardino and will play Idaho today at 5pm in the semi-finals.

Meanwhile, you will find scores and stories from the Little League Softball World Series at my sister site: Even baseball fans will find something interesting, as most of us are also Little League fans :)
