West side Little League steps up to ALS challenge
HAMILTON, Ohio (Paula Toti) -- The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was thrown to the Hamilton West Side Little League Monday, August 18th, 2014.
The 10 and 11-year-olds have been undefeated two years in a row. Believe it or not the ALS Challenge has been around about six months but it has gained a lot of attention as celebrities have stepped up the past few weeks.
By the time next year's rolls around the two time state champs will have all turned 12-years-old and be eligible for the Little League World Series. They're high on the radar screen of those in the know like Duke Pryor, a well-known trainer who threw them the challenge on social media.
So as they grabbed their buckets they tossed around words of wisdom.
"I think it's going to be fun and cold at the same time," said player Jackson Lewis.
And so with that they learned the value of making a difference about ALS. And in the end it was a game of soak the coach!
The team has now died the challenge to the Cincinnati Reds, "Boardman," a team they beat in Canton and "The Jackie Robinson Team" which is now representing the Great Lakes at the Little League World Series.
