BG East Little Leaguers ready to hit the diamond

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – ESPN baseball analyst Tim Kurkjian said the Bowling Green East Little League team is “pretty darn good.”

Players wrapped up batting practice this morning after several rounds of ping pong in their dorms. They were prepping for lunch at about 11:15 a.m. EDT ahead of the 1 p.m. first pitch in the Little League World Series.


Players from all over the world are enjoying their time getting to know each other.

Prior to the game Kurkjian said he hadn’t picked a favorite yet.


“I’ve got to see some teams first,” Kurkjian said in an interview with WNKY. “But your team is pretty darn good based on what they did in the regionals and some really colorful kids on the team, which I’m really looking forward to meeting some of the kids and talking about them because to show a little personality and a little joy for the game, that’s great for everybody.”
