When Crying at the Little League World Series is OK

Many, many tears have been shed at the Little League World Series. A bit too many, for my liking. But even I have my limits. Even I understand when someone’s gone too far, and when crying in baseball is completely acceptable.

Sure, Cumberland, Rhode Island’s young Christopher Wright struck out to end the game, his New England squad went down in defeat, again, and their dream of a Little World Series title died a gut-wrenching death. But that did kitten really have to die? How many kittens will be sacrificed in the Little League World Series until we all stand up and say, “No. Enough!”

Even Joe West thought the umpire, caught in the despicable act above, went too far. When reached for comment by our Investigative Reporting Investigation Team, West said only this:

He’s gone!

At this time, we’re unable to determine whether Cowboy Joe meant the umpire, or the kitten. Both, perhaps.

H/Ts: The Score’s @JerkInTheCorner for the lovely Photoshop-age, and The Associated Press, via daylife, for the original image. Keep up the great work. All of you.

    It’s worth noting that is virtually identical to Hawk Harrelson’s remarks in regard to Christopher Wright’s at-bat. He also proclaimed that “this game is O-vah!” immediately following the aforementioned remarks.

    are they ‘The New England Wildcats’ or something? Because then the ump was really just doing his job.

    As another Navin once wondered aloud: “How could there be a god that would let this happen?”.
