We owe the Westport Little League all-stars some huge thanks.
Thank you for making this such a fun month. You had a great ride, and we were proud to be along.
Thank you for never giving up. You won a ton of games in a lot of ways. Wednesday night’s was heartbreaking. Friday’s was breathtaking. Today’s was tough. But you were in it to win it every day, every inning of the way.
Thank you for representing your town, your families — and yourselves — astonishingly well. It’s never easy having the national spotlight on you — let alone having it for so long, when you’re all of 12 years old. You carried yourselves with amazing poise and grace. Countless college and pro athletes should take their cues from you.
Thank you for having such a good time. Your pure enjoyment of your sport was evident every time you took the field, stood at bat, or hung around the dugout. You played for all the right reasons. Including the most important: to have fun.
We’ll welcome you home. We look forward to watching many more of your games — in all the sports you play, and all the activities you do.
Thanks again. You rock our world.
