    So a Dickís Sporting Goods AstroTurf fund meant to increase their profits?

    Listen, make no mistake about it, these companies arenít providing things at this tournament because they love kids. And Little League isnít exactly a white knight organization either.

    On paper, the four best US teams advanced this far. I'm still trying to decide which team i think gives the US the best chance of beating the International sides. I think it's Hawaii.

    Regardless, some excellent ball players on all of these teams. Michigan is becoming the cardiac comeback kids.

    During Idaho-Michigan they were saying Idaho had enough tape from regionals to put together hot/cold zones on MI batters.

    Look. If this program helps some kids to find something in sports to keep them off the streets, isn't that worth it?

    Hawaii - South Korea in the championship game.

    Hawaii takes the first pitch of the bottom of the first and deposits it over the CF wall.

    It's Hawaii.

    3-0 final.

    Kid didn't even need 80 pitches to go the distance.

    Turns out they didn't need to do anything offensively after the 1st pitch.

    Great defense by Hawaii throughout the tournament. Phenomenal pitching performance too from Holt. Best team won for sure.
