A historical LLWS
Quite a number of records during yesterday’s dramatic win for the Ewa Beach Little leaguers. With a home run hit by catcher Michael Memea during the extra inning, the West Oahu baseball team won the Little League World Series title. This was the first time that a Hawaii team has captured the LLWS crown. Other interesting tidbits – Hawaii led the series for the most homers; this was the first WS championship since 1971 to have to go into extra play since 1971; pitcher Vonn Feao’s pitching speed was off the charts and quite astonishing when compared to MLB speeds…The Champions are due back tonite to Honolulu via United Airlines Flt. 939.
