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.

    I’m so happy I kept watching the game after we were down by three runs. Great game. I give a lot of credit to the family members who traveled with them too.
