Re: Little League World Series

AFAIK, there is no girl's baseball division. The first girl acknowledged to play in Little League was Kathryn Johnston in 1950. In 1951, LL added a reg that forbid girls. Softball was added to program in 1974 due to court rulings requiring opportunities for girls. Thanks to Maria Pepe and NOW. Since, reg was changed and 19 girls have played in baseball LLWS.

At 7, my daughter explicitely asked to play baseball instead of softball because "in softball can't lead off and that ball is too big for my hand" - catcher, highest on-base average, all-star for 3 seasons through Juniors.

BTW, I have seen 3 boys play in softball division in our district.

Perhaps I was unclear. There is a girls' softball division. There is no girls' hardball division of which I am aware. But in the girls' softball division, a Louisiana team did well.

I'm sure you are proud of your daughter's efforts and I can only wish her good luck with her time in organized sports.

Re: Little League World Series

As I said, I know there is softball in Little League.

My point is, it's not "boy's" baseball and "girl's" softball in Little League - the regs are gender neutral. Although the tendency is for boys to go to baseball and girls to softball, I have seen the reverse.

My daughter is gone from Little League 20 yrs now and recently rediscovered hockey.

Re: Little League World Series

Ah, I see the distinction. The reporters here apparently do not. From their published reports, our local Little League (or perhaps more precisely, our formal affiliation to it) started six years ago in our area. Before that, the closest "official" team was Lafayette, Louisiana. A man named Frazier started up the formalities in our area in 2013 and now, six years later, he has let a team of 10-12 year old boys to the pinnacle of their sport.

Side effect: This is already a party town, but now at least two major parties have been planned for the kids - a celebration to be held in our local minor-league baseball stadium later today and a weekend parade to be held through River Ridge ending at a suitable party venue in Harahan, Louisiana, complete with police escorts and cheering crowds. Some of the local schools have also expressed their intention of recognizing the kids as they return to classes. The kids will eventually have to come down to Earth again, but that will be OK.

On the other hand, for those schools that offer work on writing essays, I can see some fairly interesting "What I Did Last Summer" stories in their futures.

Re: Little League World Series

Uncle G, I believe we have a cross-cultural idiom conflict here.

I am going to assume you were asking about the celebrations.

From the reports, the kids were just having fun at the games. But to come home to a hero's welcome was somewhat overwhelming. Some of them were near tears due to the crowds waiting for them at the airport. Better still, it isn't over.

This Mardi Gras they have a standing invitation to ride in a Jefferson Parish parade on a special float celebrating their victory. In New Orleans, if you get to ride a special float in your honor, that is the pinnacle of social success. Bragging rights for centuries. Stories to tell your kids and grandkids. Treasured scrapbooks and photo albums. Things like that. I have to say that this area is incredibly proud of these kids and offers words of thanks and support at every opportunity.

They are at the age where they might expect one last growth spurt, so they are already in line for getting a bigger hat size anyway, but after this, they will NEED a bigger hat size.
