5 Recent Sports Happenings That Deserve a Look

1.  Georgia Hall just won her first major women's championship at the age of 22, winning the 2018 Ricoh Women's British Open. Hall is only the second player from England to win this major event.

What's even better than that? Her dad was by her side the entire time carrying her bag and lending support as her caddie!

2.   The 2018 LLWS is next week! While we are eagerly waiting to see which teams will advance past the regional tournaments this weekend, lets take a look back at the 1998 LLWS Champions...

1998-LLWS

20 years ago, the Toms River Little League (NJ) left Williamsport as World Series Champions. This year, the team will reunite at Lamade Stadium...reminiscing about their time down on that field and watching their former teammate Todd Frazier take the field as his NY Mets take on the Philadelphia Phillies in this year's MLB Little League Classic.

3.  Football season is back! That means that parents are getting their kids signed up for pee-wee leagues, adults are participating in fantasy drafts with friends and co-workers are eagerly waiting for regular season to start, but it also means that fans big and small are showing their team pride and are full of hope for their team to become World Champions. 

Some teams feed off of the fans that fill the stadium decked out in team colors, face painted and cheering as loud as they can, but for the NY Jets, their inspiration is pint size. 

Little Giovanni Toribio, a cancer survivor at the age of 6, took the field during a recent inter-squad scrimmage and showed the Jets how to be a warrior and push through.

4.  The Rochester Red Wings, AAA affiliate for the Minnesota Twins, recently pulled off a hidden ball trick. Take a look at the below video and see if you would have fallen for it...

 


5. LeBron James gives words of wisdom to his son's AAU team. When you're on a team, you may need to play a role you weren't expecting, but it may be what will take the team to the next level.

While young athletes may not want to hear the message, it's a good lesson to learn young.
