Anybody watch this on ESPN a couple nights ago? I had Tivo'd it and just watched. (I DO have a life, but a local team from Greensburg played in it, and I knew some kids).

But anyway, these are 12-13 year old girls and I was amazed at how they played, particularly the team from Georgia that beat Greensburg.

These girls were perfect. They knew exactly what to do with the ball in every situation. Their fundamentals blew me away. How come major league teams cannot do this???

Georgia's catcher, a little skinny girl, was unbelievable. She had a ton of putouts and even started a DP on a bunted ball.

Anybody see this??

One thing I did HATE...after EVERY OUT, the girls all ran in to the pitcher, the entire infield, and exchanged high fives. (Personally I think they may have watched Lastings Milledge a bit too much...and since they are all 12-13, that scares me. :D

Dammit Animal, you stole my punchline. I was going to quote your earlier line about the 12-13 year old girls and make a remark about Lastings for ya, but you beat me to it. Not to mention all the "put outs".... :lol:
