California Champions

Ocean View Little League of Huntington Beach, Ca.

Its always heartbreaking to watch the little league world series. Why? Because somebody has to lose. This year it was Japan having their little hearts broken. We Californians can only give poor Japan, who had another team from Tokyo win it all in 2010, a few seconds of silence before breaking out in celebration for our young champions from the Golden State.

Yes, the 2011 little league champions are from Huntington Beach, California. They won it with a bases loaded walk-off grounder up the middle against Japan's Hamamatsu City mashers. The mashers made a few critical errors to load the bases and thus seal their fate.

Meanwhile, our California boys showed power and determination at the plate in battling a tough Japanese pitcher.

Congratulations California Little League, you are deservingly Champions!
