“We wanted to say thank you to Georgia for such a selfless act, making that donation for us, and we wanted to let them know that we wish them the best before the game.”
Honolulu (Hawaii) Little League and Peachtree City (Georgia) Little League have been named the co-recipients of the 2018 Jack Losch Little League Baseball World Series Team Sportsmanship Award.
This year marks the first time in the award’s 15-year history that there have been two teams presented with the award.
“The amount of sportsmanship, character and respect that these two teams have displayed throughout this World Series has truly been remarkable and fully exemplifies the values and spirit that the award represents,” said Stephen D. Keener, Little League President and CEO. “We are honored to present this award to both teams and hope their display of sportsmanship will continue to inspire local Little League programs around the world.”
