World Series – Little League Style

Series heads back to Boston with Red Sox leading the way.







I think I might have tuned in to the Little League World Series. I usually try to avoid it because I don't like to see 12-year-olds crying on national TV. But when I tuned into the real world series, it looked more like Little League.

Game one, when the shortstop drops  a flip toss, or where the pitcher watches an easy pop-up fall. Game two, when there was an ill-advised throw to third. Game three, when there was an ill-advised throw to third. (didn't I just say that?) Game four, when a runner was picked off first to end the game (definitely a Little League play). Game five, when a batter made a plate appearance with a batting average of .769. These are Little League plays on a big league  stage.

David Ortiz finished the game at .733. He is behind Billy Hatcher who has the record at .750 and ahead of Babe Ruth at .625.

The Red Sox won game 5 3-1 to take a 3-2 World Series lead. The series moves back to Boston, where there is a chance for the Red Sox to win in Boston for the first time since 1918.
David Ortiz would also be the first member of the Red Sox to be on three championship teams since Babe Ruth.
