So Close In Burlington
Little Leaguers Came Up Big
With the Little League World Series starting up this week, we have to honor our little local heros...that almost made it to Williamsport, PA.
The Burlington 12-year-olds won the state title, and represented Wisconsin extremely well in the Great Lakes Regional. Even got a little love on ESPN2.
Trailing Moline, Illinois...Burlington's Houston Cowan hit a 3-run homer...to cut the lead to one.
Unfortunately, Burlington couldn't make up the full deficit and lost by the slimmest of margins, 6-5.
Congrats to these fine young gentlemen...and the future remains bright in Burlington, since I'm told the 10-11 year old baseball team won the State Championship as well!
