THANK YOU to the girls who play softball...safe trip home and keep those memories close. Work hard in school and sports...the world is yours!
P.S. This is why so many volunteers spend almost two weeks of their lives in tents, scooping ice cream, selling 50/50 tickets, announcing games, taking photos, getting ice, painting bleachers, dragging fields, holding flags, videoing, and organizing it all... :
(from this morning's Daily Gazette, Sterling, Illinois, and writer Paul Skrbina)
Sterling (Little League) spent Wednesday night at a hotel pool, swimming with their third-place game opponents from Puerto Rico. "That's extremely awesome," McKenna Pearson said. I never imagined hanging out with a team from Puerto Rico in Portland, Oregon."
The experience even inspired Jennifer Rahn to dream bigger.
"I'll look back on it as the experience of a lifetime," she said. "I'm going to love telling all the stories I can.
I might even try to coach a team and get them here."
Jennifer, we can't wait.
