Well, it's supposed to be a home game for the O's, who probably wouldn't sell out Williamsport if it was just O's fans attending.

Sounds strangely appropriate given all the mental mistakes we've made this year. Maybe we can pick up some tips from the LL :p

I expect that every infield grounder that gets thrown away while the runners circle the bases will be scored a home run.

I really wish I could score tickets for this since it’s only like an hour away.

Good thing it's next year. 'Cause you know the Sox would lose by the mercy rule.
It would nice if Yaz was involved. Him being the first Hall of Famer who played little league.

Not going to be easy. By the time the teams are seated as well as all the sponsors and whatever else Little League and ESPN have to take care of the tickets are close to gone.
And I'm about an hour and 15 minutes away.

Really with Yaz? Wiki says inaugural LL year was 1939. Yaz was born that year and would have been LL age 8 in 1948. There was no one else that played LL from 1939 to 1947 and made the majors? Interesting topic. Maybe LL took a hiatus during the war.

I'm not sure he's the first to make it to the majors, but he is certainly the first LL player to be inducted into Cooperstown.

I fully expect David Price to get into a Twitter feud with an 11 year old athlete at some point during this series. 50/50 on whether it will be over heckling, or Fortnite drama.

"It was a hot day. But 11 year old Timmy Worthington had only one reaction when he first tasted the Frozen Scrapple on a Stick."
"Yuck."
"That's all Red Sox lefty David Price, warming up nearby, had to hear . . . . ."
