Hawaii Randy's Real Estate Opinions: Waipio Gentry Wins Little League World Series!!!

Waipio Gentry Wins Little League World Series!!!

The amazing youngsters from Hawaii are the 2008 Little League World Series Champions!

How could they top the amazing game on Saturday where they entered the last inning down 5-1 to lake Charles, Louisiana.  The Hawaii team then put on a hitting clinic with a six run rally to win 7-5.  I was jumping out of my chair cheering.  It was better than watching the Olympics.

Well they found a way top that by beating Mexico 12-3 in the final game.  Good pitching and great hitting made the difference for them in the series. 

There were many great moments in the series.  The one we will all remember was in the game against Mill Creek, Washington when Lolani Akau pinch hit a home run.  What made this amazing was he got hit by a pitch in the opening game and had a fracture in his elbow.  He will have stories to tell his grandchildren about that amazing home run.

We are all so proud of the team for not only winning but by showing wonderful sportsmanship throughout the tournament and representing Hawaii so proudly.

Congratulations to the team, the coaches and the parents for doing such a wonderful job of preparing these terrific young men.

**For those who didn't know our Hawaii team from Ewa Beach won the Little League World Series in 2005.
