Little League World Series player can’t believe an awful strike call.

We’ve seen plenty of terrible calls from umpires over the past few years. Unfortunately for Landry Pate of the Wylie Little League All-Stars, who are representing Texas in this year’s Little League World Series, he was on the wrong end of an awful call on Tuesday night.

During the top of the third inning, Pate took a pitch that was way outside. Everyone watching at the stadium thought it would be a ball since it was off the plate. The umpire, however, thought it clipped the outside corner and called it a strike.

Pate couldn’t believe the call from the home plate umpire, as he just stood there in disbelief. He even looked around to see if anyone else disagreed with the call.

The broadcast crew for ESPN couldn’t believe that pitch was ruled a strike. However, they

PV Track & Field coach goes viral for high jumping videos

BETTENDORF, Iowa (KWQC) – Monmouth native and Pleasant Valley Girls Track and Field coach Kaz Johnson has been high jumping since middle school. However, the St. Ambrose alum didn’t start sharing his jumping ability on a wider scale until he got some encouragement from one of his athletes.

“I was training here, I want to say it was last Summer with one of my athletes and we just kind of set up a series of circuits using hurdles, and one thing led to another and she showed me some stuff on the internet she’s like ‘yeah look at these guys here’ and she just kind of motivated me to go out there and just try it out,” Johnson said.

Since then, he’s garnered thousands of followers on his Instagram and recently reached new heights with one of his videos.

Kobe Bryant and Giannis Antetokounmpo shakes hands after a game.

Last night, Giannis Antetokounmpo won his first NBA championship, completing a challenge issued to him two years ago by the late Kobe Bryant.

In fact, in the wake of Giannis’ all-time great closeout performance and the Milwaukee Bucks’ first NBA title in 50 years, two of Kobe’s old tweets to the “Greek Freak” are going viral. The first one was from August 2017, when Kobe responded to Giannis asking him for a challenge.

The “Black Mamba” urged him to go win MVP, which Giannis eventually did twice. After his first MVP award in 2019, Kobe assigned another task to the young superstar.

“My man….MVP. Greatness. Next up: Championship #MambaMentality,” he tweeted on June 24, 2019.

Mission accomplished.

After last night’s game, Giannis spoke candidly about the impact Kobe’s challenges had on him.

“Kobe Bryant thinks I can do

Carson Verszyla got an early birthday present Monday morning when he saw himself on “SportsCenter.”

Verszyla, who turned 13 Monday and is a sixth-grader in the Pine-Richland School District, scored a highlight-reel spin-o-rama goal Sunday that was featured as the top play on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” top 10.

“It was honestly pretty cool,” Verszyla said. “I was shocked to see myself on there because that’s the kind of thing you dream about. I never expected to be on ‘SportsCenter’ top 10 and be No. 1.”
