Not So Little League

I used to be a huge fan of the Little League World Series. It seemed so pure and carefree. I know better now. The "teams" seen daily on ESPN and ABC are actually hand-picked collections of all-stars. That's one reason most teams feature a 5'10" pitcher throwing seventy mph. It's still an amazing spectacle- and I'll catch as many games as possible- but I now understand I'm watching big-time, high-pressure athletics.

    The team from the US that got beat out by Japan 5 years ago was from my little town outside of Orlando, FL. Home grown in the indoor foliage capital of the world - Zack Grienke is from Apopka as well.

    And Apopka means "potato"
    (I used to live in Longwood)
