Last year our kids from Whalley Little League were off to Williamsport, PA for the Little League World Series (Aug. 17-26). While our North Surrey team didn’t make the cut this time around but lucky for locals, South Surrey/White Rock stepped up to the plate.
White Rock-Surrey Little League from White Rock, British Columbia needed only four innings to defeat Calgary West Little League, 14-4, claim the Canada Region championship, and secure the final international berth in the 61st Little League Baseball World Series. [Little League Online]
Unfortunately DaveO’s favrourite team south of the border did not qualify, but they put up a valiant effort nonetheless. To catch the action they’re televising every game, between ABC, ESPN and ESPN2.
The World Series championship game can be seen live on ABC television at 3:30 p.m., on Sunday, Aug. 26. ABC also will televise the International championship game on Saturday, Aug. 25 at 12:30 p.m., followed by the United States championship at 3:30 p.m. [Little League Online]
We’re super proud of the local team’s success and wish them luck at the world series.
