Here's a huge THANK YOU to the volunteer staff and umpires of the 2009 Little League Softball World Series. The tournament is a once-in-a-lifetime experience (or twice-in-a-lifetime for some kids :) that makes everye effort to cater to the players, coaches and families from the ten teams who make it through the summer of qualifying levels: District, Section, State, Regional and finally, WS.
Through 20 Pool Play Games and then bracket/consolation play, we have been treated to outstanding softball and sportsmanship from all the teams. It is an honor to play here and it has been an honor to showcase their efforts.
One team emerged the Champion: Warner Robins American Little League, Warner Robins, Georgia, representing the Southeast Region. They returned home heroes yesterday, but all the girls are heroes in my book...
Thanks to everyone for a great week!
