2023 is here. We did a small dinner/BBQ last night with Justin and fam over, and of course Peaches and fam here for the holidays. We took photos of the family and the kids of course.
I must say that mere congratulations is not enough. Not only did Hawaii win the Little League World Series, but they dominated their entire elimination bracket all the way to the final game.
They swept all 6 of their games. Of those 6 games:
4 mercy rule wins
vs curacao mercy rule win 13-3
vs northwest mercy rule win 11-1
vs metro region mercy rule shutout 12-0
vs southeast mercy rule shutout 13-0
vs southwest shutout 6-0
vs southeast 5-1

Happy Mother’s Day 2022!
