Seeking // Searching // Longing // Hoping

The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why...M. Twain

But the pleasant thing is to wake early, throw open the window, and lie reading in bed.

The Jackie Robinson West All-Stars Little League Baseball Team. 

Is an all-Black team of rising baseball stars from Morgan Park, a neighborhood of Chicago’s South Side. During the World Series opener in Williamsburg, Pa the team beat Lynnwood, Washington team via the mercy rule with a score of 12-2!!! (Mercy Rule Definition:brings a sports event to an early end when one team has a very large and presumably insurmountable lead over the other team.)  

Bill Haley, whose father founded the team in 1971. “When you see kids from similar backgrounds and similar situations, you pull for them to be successful and beat the odds,” he told the New York Times. 

Like their team’s namesake, Jackie Robinson, who first broke baseball’s color barrier 67 years ago, these boys also dream of the majors. They believe the passion they share for baseball will help them win it all.

The Team will compete against other leagues from around the globe, in hopes of winning the little league’s highest honor. 

The Jackie Robinson West All-Stars take on their next competitor, the Mountain Ridge Little League of Las Vegas, Nevada August 17. 

 

Yaaasss! Thats right in my hood! Go black excellence!

Choose love when you’ve been hurt, wronged, crushed, broken. Choose love when it’s seems impossible to love, or forgive. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the LORD will reward you.

I want a trouble-maker for a lover, blood spiller, blood drinker, a heart of flame, who quarrels with the sky and fights with fate, who burns like fire on the rushing sea.
