down but not out

What do you do when your team is losing 0 to 20 in the top of the fourth inning and your hopes of winning the Little League World Series are pretty much dashed?

Why you DANCE of course!  Yes, dance. 🙂

Article Excerpt:

One of those in tears was 11-year-old Vaughn Bergen, who was due up to the plate that inning. As tears poured down his face, Vaughn’s father approached. Luigi Bergen, a coach on the Aruban team, told his son, “You’re coming up [to bat] here. Do you want to do it crying or do you want to do it happily?”

Vaughn chose to do it happily. He stepped to the plate and grounded out to third.

Then, in the top of the fourth inning, as Asia-Pacific padded its lead with four more runs, ESPN’s cameras panned to left field and caught Vaughn Bergen doing … this:

“I was mad because we were not going to make it to the final,” Vaughn said when asked why he started dancing in the middle of Saturday’s game.

“My dad told me to enjoy myself, and I did.”
