Im sure many of you have already seen this video as it is all over the blogosphere, but I felt the urge to put it up here because I can't stop laughing. After breezing through every level of the little league all-star tournament, our beloved Mercer Islanders met their match in pool A of the World Series. After losing 5-3 to Iowa and 10-2 to NY to become mathmatically eliminated from the semi-finals, they still had to play their 3rd game in pool play. This game was against the betting favorite, Warner Robbins, GA. Going into the 6th our boys had a 2-1 lead, looking to get out of Williamsport with a little bit of their pride in tact. In to the game came Brandon Lawler to shut the door. 2 runs, 3 wild pitches, and 2 passed balls later, we had this beautiful exchange at the mound. Lucky for us we have all access so we can hear the cute little kids enjoying the game:
I imagine this is how conversations go down in the big leagues. "Is it ok if I just hit the batter?"
This. Is. Awesome.
No, I had not seen this.
This kid is my new favorite non-Mariner baesball player.
He embodies everything that is wrong about little league: poor sportmanship, disrespect for the game, disrespect for authority, GEEZ I could go on and on.
The only thing that would have made this any better, is if he had stayed in the game and plunked the guy anyway.
If you look into the eyes of the pitcher as he asks to come out, you can see the reflection of his mom pulling up to the field in her Mercedes SUV with Caramel Frappuccino for him.
I'm pretty sure this kid is John Bender. He looks like him and he's got the attitude. I heard he was playing baseball in hopes of getting himself a schol-a-sheeeip.
