My Latest Scholastic News Articles on the Little League World Series

31 Aug


Hello blogosphere!

I wanted to let you know that my latest Scholastic News Kids Press Corps article(s) are out! I got to cover the Little League World Series (LLWS) in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. It was a fun ten-day tournament and a very exciting final game.


I have one on the Kids Press Corps site about the “behind the scenes” at the LLWS – click HERE!

There is a video of some interviews I did – click HERE!


And an article on the main Scholastic news site about the final game! Click HERE!

    Good work, E. Mom and I read the Scholastic News story. Even though we don’t even understand sports, you made it interesting! Well done.

    Love and licks,

      Thank you Cupcake! Don’t feel bad – I don’t really understand sports either! 😉

    You LUCKY!, LUCKY! kid. I have been watching the LLWS on TV before ESPN got involved. I have wanted to go there for those two weeks so much, for so long, I am filled with evil green envy right now. I’m glad I didn’t see this during the final game. I might have blown my stitched leather cover and all my stuffing would have popped out right down to the little rubber ball core (get it), all over your site.

    Wow! I want to see pictures. I need stories. How did you get to do this? Did Scholastic actually send you? Do you need to be a kid? Do you think Scholastic would notice I’m not kid and send me next year? Seriously, how did you get this assignment? Maybe you should send me an email/or I should send you one. My inner-kid is going crazy right now.

    Nice reporting!!

      Thank you Ms. Morris! It was a really fun event. I really wish you could come see it. I will send you an email at some point (school is pretty hectic right now) in the near future.
