Kyle Carter was a filthy, filthy pitcher.

And it was played actually live at 5 ET. They just reran it at 8 ET because that was the original time to play at.

Kyle Carter got good stuff. Go Matsmoto or his name is really good, great control. Kyle Carter brings the effing heat man.

Big props guys ...
I watched as many of the games as I could .. ;-D

anybody able to dig up some season stats for the kid that was on the mound tonight? I understand he hit 40 some odd homeruns this season, and throws a MLB eqiv. 100 MPH with decent movement...

Now if he would only respect the game enough to wear his hat properly. :-o

Kyle Carter (the kid's name) actually hit like 52ish HRs. I don't think they dig up season stats on Little League kids.

Kyle Carter stood out to me most definetely. Then, a kid from Oregon (Sam Albert) stood out to me for his clutchness and defensive plays. And of course, the good pitching always stands out to me.

And yeah, Kyle Carter's hat looked always in the wrong spot.

During one of the telecasts, the explained that he had always worn his had tilted to the side to relieve pressure to a blood vessel in his head? They said it was no disrespect to the game, b/c they've heard a lot of people saying things.

They sounded serious, and Carter especially seemed like a good kid. They included the teams they beat in the USA final and the World Final to run around the field with them. Thought that was pretty classy.

Carter was actually the first kid from Georgia to shake hands with the team from Japan. He seemed like he respected the game.

Trivia: Joe Saunders was on the Springfield VA team that won the series.

Also, I hate the media for telling me who won this afternoon before the game
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I believe I heard Carter had 53 homers in 40 games... not too bad.

Throw in the fact that he throws 80 mph (160 ML equivalent 8-o ) and you got my 2007 first rounder

I don't think he throws the equivalent of 160 mph. I think it's more along the lines of 100 mph.

160 :-? :-? I think 80 is a lot closer to 105 then it is 160 mph.



Anyways congrats Georgia on that Little League title.
