It's always great to watch the kids because the play the game for the love of it not for the money as they get none. These games always seem close and you sit on your seat on every pitch and every play. This is what baseball is all about. There is at least one sport left that does things the right way. The Little League World Series is always a good time no matter what country you are from.
