how i'm pulling for 12-year-olds

this polished softball machine that's typing this entry is a fine product of the well-oiled mid island little league of staten island, new york. you might know us as the 1964 world champions, or from being one out away from being national champions just nine years ago.

or you might know us from our current run into the little league world series, culminated last night with a walk-off home run to win the mid-atlantic championship.

why not us?

go mid-island. even from as far away as san francisco, you've got alumni behind you. and we're proud.

by the way, i'm gonna go out on a limb and say that this week is one of the top three in staten island sports history. not only does mid-island make the world series, but new springville resident oleg maskaev wins a version of the heavyweight championship against hasim rahman.

a world series berth and a heavyweight championship. and it's just tuesday.
