R-O-B-B-I-E Spells Relief: Little Leaguer Gets Shot in Big Game

Filed under: In The News, Amazing Kids





It's a moment that Robbie Wilson won't soon forget.

According to Buzzfeed, where we first saw this awesome clip, it was the bottom of the sixth inning, with two outs -- which is the final out in Little League -- when Robbie's Auburn, Wash. teammates "voted" him in to pitch his first-ever Little League World Series game against a team from Fairfield, Conn.

We especially love the shot of two of his teammates behind him, pointing at him, as the coach and manager make their decision. Even better? Robbie went on to win the game, defeating Connecticut 9-5.

According to a spokeswoman in the Little League West Region Headquarters, Auburn was eliminated from the World Series after losing 7-5 to Texas on Aug. 26, but the team's overall performance in the tournament will catapult them into the ranks of the top four teams in the country.

This adorable video makes us want to head to the ballpark, or have a catch with our kids in the back yard. Way to go, Robbie!
