The kid pitching when I saw this was 13 (I thought the age group was 11-12, must be a recent birthday), 6 ft 2, 205 lbs. He dwarfed all the other kids. At the time he was pitching a shutout. But even a man playing baseball with preteens loses its appeal so I turned it, no idea how it turned out.
Mary, I remember those days with Pacific Classic or other interesting sports being overrun by the LLWS. How frustrating.
Back in the late 80's and early 90's, I watched NWA wrestling on the Superstation (I was just a teenager then) and I would get so mad when Atlanta Braves games would cut into my Ric Flair and 4 horsemen time. Usually they would start after wrestling on Saturdays, but sometimes they would have an earlier game or on Sunday be playing before hand it would always be a slow game or no doubt extra innings. I hated it with a passion.
