The final signal that the home run is pass

Home runs? That's so late 90s.

Little Leaguers know this, and if they don't... well then an extra 20 feet oughta show 'em.

The decision to push back the fences is not intended to thwart a growing population of pumped-up 12-year-olds but instead give outfielders more ground to cover.
I approve of this decision.

Also... Is it bad that part of the reason I like watching the Little League World Series is cause I like seeing some of these punk kids cry when their team gets schooled? Cause you know some of those kids are total punks. You don't gather together that many 8-12 year olds and not have at least a few little pricks in the group.
