Little League Superball win - forfeited

Original post made by Little League Parent, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Jun 24, 2007

Yesterday the above team came back from being 0 7 down at the end of the 2nd inning to coming back to finish 13 10 in a superb game. This win was forfeited due to a technical point.

The message to our kids must be to play well, have fun, be good sports regardless of the score, to be a team player, the experience is more than the result, etc. etc. In this particular game, the end result showed bad sportsmanship can win, a win can be a defeat and to the other team, if you lose your manager can argue the way out.

I hope that this sort of disagreement does not continue in Palo Alto sports and that our kids learn the right message.
