These Puerto Rican Little Leaguers Bring Their Own Storm
They’re making landfall. The players from Radames Lopez Little League have suffered through hurricanes Irma and Maria, which claimed some 1,400 island inhabitants. The kids dealt with scarce drinking water and electricity and winds that destroyed their main supermarket. Just showing up for practice in the heat of the day was hard enough. But baseball gave them a routine — one they loved. And they survived, going undefeated in the Caribbean regional tournament, which earned them a spot in the Little League World Series in Pennsylvania, playing out this weekend.
