Clearwater Little League BaseballThe night was almost dark black with the moon about to rise over the horizon.  A small boy with a large bat came out of the shadows of the dugout and approached home plate.  The lights on the field were bright and blinded him a little, but he adjusted as he stepped into the batters box.  Two outs, two men on base and his team was down in the game by one run.

Article and Photos by Wayne Cathel

Clearwater, FL (Feb. 2009) - The atmosphere was set for a rematch of the World Series in front of a record crowd of 10,270 at Bright House Field on Saturday afternoon. There was a brisk home-run wind blowing out to left and temperatures in the upper 70’s. It only seems like yesterday (October) when these two teams met last for game number 5 in Philly in which the playing conditions were 30 degrees cooler than Saturday’s sun-basking afternoon.
