As a devoted fan of America's national pastime, this has been a disappointing year in baseball. MLB suspends 13, including A-Rod. It raises legitimate concerns about how these role models for young athletes coming up through Little League programs may damage the future of the game.
So it was a pleasant surprise when I opened my copy of the Arizona Daily Star today and saw this photo of Tucson's Sunnyside Little League Softball World Series Champions celebrating their championsip. Little League Softball: Sunnyside wins World Series title, does "what they do best". The pure ecstatic joy on the faces of these young girls restores my faith in America's national pastime.
Coach Mike Candrea of the eight time NCAA Softball National Champion University of Arizona Wildcats may want to extend an offer to the Sunnyside champs to play for the U of A and keep this local talent here at home in Tucson.
