Holy S–t!

I thought the 1969 Mets season was the epitome of incredible, exciting, unbelievable baseball.

Westport’s Little League all-stars make that year look like…well, there are no words.

There simply are no words.

Except: Amazing!

In the midst of all of today's craziness, Rob Stone took this shot of Westport's faithful.

    • Westport was down 1-0, up 5-3, down 12-5 — and won 14-13 in the bottom of the 7th (extra inning). You can’t make this stuff up.

  9. YAY!!!These kids are great. Goods sportsmanship and real talent.

  10. Dan, Recruit them for your soccer team when they reach Staples!

  11. Four heart attack games in a row! I am so proud of this team for representing Westport Little League so well!!! Tim Rogers rocks!

    I could be wrong, but reminds me of 2004 — but I am a Sox fan! Go Westport!!!!!

  14. I’m in Brazil and it’s killing me not being able to watch the games. C’mon ESPN send the games to ESPN do Brasil! Please?!

  15. Without question, one of the MOST INCREDIBLE games of LL Baseball ever played!! To follow the lead of the ’69 Mets!!

  17. Hey Dan!!

    I moved to Fairfield in 2001, but my heart has always remained in Westport. And I am so proud of these kids!!!

  19. In case anyone missed it — or just can’t get enough of these amazing young men — ESPN Classic is ‘instant’ rebroadcasting the game (started at 8:00 pm).

  20. For certain, no wiser words were ever spoken: “It ain’t over till it’s over.” especially when you’re talking about Little League!

    Gotta love those kids.

    We are relatively new to Westport (2008), but are incredulous at the talent and heart of these kids! Never say never!
