True Sportsmanship
My heart was touched as I am sure was yours at the sight of Georgia winning the LLWS. As the boys jumped for joy they noticed the Japan team members starting to cry, the boys from Georgia stopped, walked over to the Japan and starting hugging their fellow ball players that just loss a long eight innings battle.
In was true sportsmanship, caring and class. Not a simple hand slap but hugs. A sign of hope that sports may not be overrun by greed and self-centered attitude. We applaud both teams for their efforts and noble behavior.

Please copy and take a look at this link. It will remind you of why we play the game.

That was a great moment in sports. Nice to see after watching Vick on TV. Great job all the boys at LLWS.
