The nation has been riveted by the spectacle of Little League pitching phenomena Mo’ne Davis this past week – quite the sporting story indeed. But while all eyes have been on Ms. Davis, here in New England, we’ve had our own reason to be proud.
A big hurrah to the kids from Rhode Island’s Cumberland American Little League who represented New England so well in the recent Little League World Series. Kudos also to their stellar coach, David Belisle, who offered the kids a moving lesson in sportsmanship and how to handle loss. The team will be welcomed home today – expected arrival at Diamond Hill Park in Cumberland at 5 p.m.
The speech is a little more inspirational than this classic one!
