New England (represented by Cumberland, Rhode Island) was eliminated from the Little League World Series on Monday night. The Cumberland American were beaten 8-7 by Jackie Robinson West out of Chicago, but these players will always remember this inspirational post-game speech by their coach.


David Belisle gathered his players on the field after being knocked out of the LLWS and made all of America shed a tear.


This is exactly what Little League baseball is all about. Kids are going to get emotional while on the field and after losing a baseball game. Despite all of the media attention that this event gets, the important thing to remember is that these are still kids. Belisle's speech highlights their achievements as a group and implores them to be kids again.

Go out there and have fun for the next few days, boys. You earned it.

Reminded me of Greg McDermott's post-game speech to his Creighton Blue Jays basketball team after being eliminated from the NCAA tourney in March.
