Little League Baseball World Series

Aloha champions. Providing their state with a much needed pick me up after Hurricane Lane, the team from Hawaii beat the South Korean team to claim the title of Little League Baseball World Series Champions. The Hawaiians and their opponents then engaged in an unusual series tradition, collecting a handful of infield dirt in baggies to commemorate their playing time. BRINGING SAND TO THE BEACH

Last season, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton led his team to a big victory over the Baltimore Ravens (NFL – National Football League).

In gratitude, Bills fans donated $450,000 to Dalton’s charity.

He spoke about how he wants his girls “to grow up in a world where their gender does not feel like a rulebook for what they should think, or be, or do.” READ THE INSPIRING ESSAY HERE
