Synopsis: It's just like the pros: bright lights, screaming fans, squawking commentators and five million people watching you play your heart out on national television for the right to be called champions. But these are not pampered multimillion-dollar athletes; they are 11- to 13-year-old kids.

The 2005 World Series was the most dramatic in the 58-year history of the Little League. With full access to the players, coaches and parents associated with both teams who played in that game, Charles Euchner delivers an astonishing and dramatic narrative that delves into every aspect of the little league game.

"Even those with only a passing interest in baseball will be intrigued by this fascinating look at Little League, 'the largest amateur sports organization in the world.'"
-Publishers Weekly

"Readers can expect to learn a great deal about the history of Little League and the stories behind many teams. This well-written book will inform and entertain."
-Library Journal

From the Inside Flap: ?From humble beginnings in 1939, Little League baseball has come a long way. Organized into leagues and tournaments, today it’s big business, a global entity in over a hundred countries, with each team of kids eyeing the ultimate prize: the Little League World Series, held every year in modest Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

The 2005 World Series featured Little League’s greatest ending on its biggest stage. Now seen in over five million homes, the thrilling final game of the series was one for the ages.

Charles Euchner, author of the widely acclaimed The Last Nine Innings, goes behind the scenes with the teams of the 2005 series, taking us on an astonishing journey inside the world of youth sports, a world we all think we know, a pastime we call “America’s.”
Through the eyes of its amazing characters-precocious players, stressed-out parents from all corners of the globe, huge corporations seeking the spotlight and coaches who will do just about anything to win-you’ll learn how the Little League is both ordinary and strange, for children and for adults, and ultimately how everything changes when you are chasing championship dreams.
?Charles Euchner is the author and editor of seven books, a former college professor, city planner and journalist. His books include Playing the Field: Why Sports Teams Move and Cities Fight to Keep Them and his most recent work, the highly acclaimed The Last Nine Innings, which was an account of the 2001 World Series.
