    You are right, Data Man. Southern Pitt 11 year olds won the State and the Regional and no story by the media. Southern Pitt 14 year olds won the State and play in the Regionals tomorrow and no story by the media... And these are just the teams that I know about from Southern Pitt.

    Fed Up, if you notice that Greenville Tarheel gets all of the publicity. NorthState 11-12 went to the stay playoff and you never heard about it!

    I wonder why the teams in Greenville never play the Southern Pitt Teams. Greenville little league gets tons of publicity while the Southern Pitt Teams quietly continue to play well and claim State and Regional titles.

    NorthState 11-12 would have probaly won out down here if they had played their strongest kids in the right place. One little kid had a rocket in the outfield but didnt even hardly play at all. I guess they came down for vaccation or something.

    You never hear about the little league's problems like drug abuse or steroids. I'm talking about the parents, of course.
