Today's games conclude Pool Play for the 2009 Little League Softball World Series. After tonight's final game, the top two teams of each pool will meet with ESPN and tournament officials to go over tomorrow's semifinal games, broadcast live on ESPN2.

Tuesday, a Big Day

On Tuesday, the day begins with the All-Star Game at 10amPDT on the Main Field at Alpenrose. The All-Star game is a LLSBWS original: players from the six eliminated teams join together to play six innings with the managers in the stands :) A highlight every year, this fun game is played with official umpires and gives the girls a chance to mix and mingle, play ball, and do so without the managers and coaches directing!

All the teams then enjoy a huge barbeque hosted by the Cadonau family, owners and operators of Alpenrose Dairy, where the stadium and fields are located.

ESPN will set up during the day and the complex begins to change...Musco brings in more powerful lights (necessary for the nighttime broadcasts), the ESPN trucks and towers are operational and ESPN staff and commentators begin to roam the grounds.

The semifinal games are as followed:

Semifinal Game 21
Pool A #1 vs. Pool B #2

Semifinal Game 22
Pool A #2 vs. Pool B #1
