As many of you know sports are a huge part of our daily life. Our kids play sports year-round and since moving to Southern California they've fallen in love with baseball. Perhaps it's because they can play daily in the sunshine, but more likely, it's because we are blessed with an outstanding Little League program that is second to none.
Our local Little League All-Star team has spent the summer systematically advancing through district, state, regional, and national baseball tournaments all culminating in an electrifying win over Japan today in the Little League World Series. They are the first team from Orange County to ever win the Little League World Series.
We've gathered with friends watching games over the summer, celebrating each win and today they accomplished something most little league players will only dream of: winning the World Series.
Here are a few photos of the road to the Little League World Series and the Big Wins in Williamsport.
