    Kearney Little League Team Keeps on Winning!

    So far go good for the Kearney, Nebr Little League Team as they represent Nebraska in the Regional Tournament.

    Follow the teams here:

    TV times for the Semi's:

    Thursday, August 9
    2 p.m.:
    No. 2 seed vs. No. 3 seed, Stokely Field (ESPN).
    7 p.m.: No. 1 seed vs. No. 4 seed, Stokely Field (ESPN2).

    Looks like the Kearney, Nebr. team will likely play at 7 p.m. on ESPN2. The game times listed appear to be Eastern time.

    I'm a fan of Kearney, but not a fan of Little League baseball: No leading off, no balks, no dropped third strike, not to mention that tiny little diamond they play on. 11 & 12 year olds should be playing "real baseball"!!!

    Its also frustrating to me to see no dropped third strike, which certainly encourages pitchers to throw breaking balls as their "out" pitch, with no worries if the curve eats dirt or not.

    I think that rule changed this year.

    Well it looks like Nebraska beat Missouri 5-3.

    On to the Regional finals against the South Dakota team.

    Great job Kearney!

    Congratulations guys!
    I really hate Penn State! (And I'm not that wild about Iowa either.)

    Congrats to Kearney, but its always disappointing to see this:

    Wegner said he plans to pitch Matt Masker, who has thrown 513 innings in the tournament, making three appearances. He’s given up two hits and struck out eight.
    “He’s been real good with his control ... and he has a really good curveball with a speed change in it,” Wegner said. “Just keep changing speeds and locations, that will be the key for him.”

    I'm not a big fan of 12 year olds throwing curves (which you rarely see in USSSA upper level select baseball), but hey, if he doesn't plan on pitching in high school, why not???
