AMAZIANS OF THE WEEK! Japan’s Not-So-Little League Team

August 27th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Name: Tokyo Kitasuna Little League team

Occupation: Little League World Series Runners-Up

Known for: Coming from behind, dramatic finishes, getting to the Series on 13 year-old pitcher Ryo Kanekubo’s walk-off grand slam against Curacao, heartbreaking smiles when they won, crushing tears when they came up short in the final against Georgia.

One of their opponents, Taylor Lay of the Georgia, U.S.A. team, summed the Series up best when he said, “I don’t believe we’ll ever forget this moment. The sadness on their faces and the joy on ours…But we’re trying to let them know there’s no shame in what happened today.”

We couldn’t agree more. Keep your heads up, champs!
