I'm 65 and missed going to the Little League World Series in Williamsport because my birthdate made me ineligible to go with my team from Anna Maria Island. That time in my life and those kids I played with are some of my most loved memories. This film brought tears to my eyes more than once. Thanks for posting.

That was just what I needed. A big thanks to Bob and all his friends involved in the film. It could not have come at a better time.

I’ve been sending spirit-lifters to those I know working in critical infrastructure so that they can be distracted in a pleasant way whenever they get a break. This classic 6 minute video at NPR (2015) showing middle school kids playing a Led Zeppelin medley on xylophones is a good one and a more recent video showing a dog running full speed into a giant pile of leaves (Stella’s best leaf jumps of all time) seems to be a crowd-pleaser.

Good post! And the film was, as you said, inspiring, and rosy, yeah, but in a good way. In the face of how things are now, you see good people out there, and that we will be all right.
For a bunch of reasons, most all of my TV is YouTube, and I’m being very selective about what I watch. I’ll briefly watch a news update, but then I’ll look for something up-lifting. I’ve taken to watching interviews with people I’ve come to admire, and cooking demonstrations, and on occasion, a photo blogger. Right now, I don’t think I can handle the cable news shows.

Really enjoyed that. As a kid I played softball in a homestead community in northern Alberta. To acquire enough players we had several in their forties playing with kids as young as thirteen. Similar spirit and support though. My mother often lost her voice cheering us on.

Love this, a wonderful story.

wonderful !

That was something!! Thanks, Mike... (I say amidst the tears...)

Thanks for sharing Mike. That was a very well done short. Shared it with parents of my kids’ little league teammates.

I’ve been photographing since high school but for the last 5 years, photographing my 2 sons’ little league teams has been my main outlet for photography. It’s been great creating memories, and sharing them with their teammates’ parents.
