Unlikely Champions: A Miracle in Williamsport celebrates the 25th anniversary of the most stunning upset in the history of the Little League World Series, following the players, now successful adults, leaders, and family men, as they tell their inspirational stories and relate the life lessons they learned. Trumbull National Little League’s unlikely 5-2 victory over Taiwan in the 1989 Little League World Series evokes memories of a Little League miracle. Fifteen ordinary 12-year-old boys accomplished something extraordinary, winning the hearts of sports fans across America in the process, stunning the mighty Taiwanese. As the Trumbull kids celebrated on the field, the American-flag-waving crowd of 40,000 chanted in earnest – “USA! USA!” No one gave these Little Leaguers from a small town in Connecticut a chance to win. If your Little League son or daughter aspires to play on Williamsport’s Little League Field of Dreams for a world championship, then you must read what these Unlikely Champions have to say to your ballplayer achieving those dreams. We pass along the legacy of the game of baseball by telling stories, from fathers to sons and daughters, grandfathers to grandsons and granddaughters, one generation of fans to the next. It’s why every game broadcast features a play-by-play announcer for the action and a “color commentator,” to explain the game and share stories about it. The late A. Bartlett Giamatti often claimed that “Baseball stories were at the heart of the appeal of our game. The history of baseball is an oral one.” This is an American baseball story, finally...and finely told. Foreword by Chris Berman
