Book Review: Little League, Big Dreams 

I am embarrassed that it took me as long as it did for me to get around to reviewing as excellent a book as this. Written by Charles Euchner, author of The Last Nine Innings, an excellent dissection of Game Seven of the 2001 World Series, Little League, Big Dreams is a well-written dissection of the Little League World Series.

Before I picked up the book I had no idea about the spectacle the game up in beautiful Williamsport, PA, had become. The thousands of fans, the television cameras, the money and the passionate competition … the parents pushing their children to excel when they haven’t even hit high school. Euchner does a nice job picking up a lot of threads – the teams from Hawaii, the team from Japan – and giving the reader a full tapestry about the kids that compete there from so many different and varied backgrounds. Very well done.

-Hopefully a deal for Jon Lieber is going to happen sooner rather than later.

-Eagles game is tomorrow night at eight. GO BIRDS!!!!

Mike, as a guy who bleeds iggles green, I co-sigh with with you when you say; "GO BIRDS!!!!"

Now the "fightens" on the other hand...
They didn't make it (eagles), tell me, what is the difference between 4th and 10 and 4th and 15? Why the punt?
