What else can I say about our Lubbock All-Stars that hasn't already been said? Not much.
It's true the names and faces of these 12 year old heroes won't soon be forgotten. And by now you've realized this event is much more than even the Little League World Series and all that comes with that spotlight.
In a way, these twelve boys showed us our youth again. If just for a few days, didn't we all feel like we were competing for a world title? For that, I say thanks.
Now the spotlight turns inward to our community. It's our turn to show them our appreciation. So consider this, be a part of "A World Series Celebration" this Thursday. Show up along the parade route down 50th Street west to Slide or be there for the 6:30 p.m. ceremony at City Bank.
And if you can't make it, you can see all of the highlights right here on NewsChannel 11. But I hope you'll show up, and special thanks to United and City Bank for taking the lead here.
The reality is our boys didn't win it all, but I don't think I could say it any better than Karin and Abner did..."third in the world, first in our hearts".
Congratulations once again Western Little League!
