    That lefty from Texas was dealing tonight. 17 k's. Probably would have whiffed all 18 if not for the pitch count instituted this year.

    It's the second year for the pitch counting bs.

    I feel dirty for knowing that.

    EDIT - I can feel clean once again, the rule was announced just after last year's tourney. My bad.

    It's the first year the pitch count has been strictly enforced at all levels of the tournament, including the World Series.

    The AP was moving stories last week about how the pitch count was new this year.

    My paper covers our teams in the local District tournament, through the state sectional tournament, the state tournament and if our local team advances out of states to the regionals and then the World Series. Trust me. This was the first year the pitch count has been strictly enforced.

    In the summer we devote as much space to the Little League and Babe Ruth tournaments and American Legion ball as we do to high school sports the other parts of the year -- and that's usually a page and a half, two pages.

    It's definitely the first year of the pitch count being strictly enforced.

    I watch this every year,plus the regional championships that ESPN broadcasts. A little over the top? Absolutely, but the kid in me watches it. Team from Washington was very, very good but got upset by a team from Oregon in the finals.

    The best teams are playing right now - Texas and Arizona - in my opinion. Figure they'll meet in the U.S. championship for the right to get blasted by Japan or someone like that. Or get beat 2-1 because the star pitcher runs out of pitches after his 17th strikeout with 2 outs in the 6th.

    Probably because you don't look much older than the players, I reckon

    And did I just hear this bubblehead Sophie COrtina talk about being in "Williamsport, Minnesota" while standing in the middle of the Coon Rapids outfield section?

    Thanks

    Couldn't have figured that out in a million years.

    I guess the team from Iraq didn't make it.
