Little League makes big name for Hamilton

By Tiffany Teasley – bio | email
 
HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - Win or lose, fans in Hamilton can't get enough of their home town team. Driving up and down Main Street, you can see the signs of support for the Westside Little League Allstars.
 
"We're a baseball town, so when a baseball team from our town goes far, we're right behind them all the way," said Hamilton Mayor Pat Moeller.
 
As the West Side Little League All-stars advance inning by inning on the national stage in Williamsport, the city of Hamilton is hitting a home run along with them.
 
"It would be great to see someone from this town go that far, because baseball is a really big part of this community," said Kyla Rooney of Walt's Barbeque in Hamilton.
 
"All the people are talking about the little league, they're rooting them on," said Richard Lindy, owner of Rags to Richards T-shirts in Hamilton.
 
The store has already sold out of their all-star apparel, Lindy says the team spirit is contagious across the city.
 
"It's really a great feeling to be in Hamilton," Lindy said.
 
Walt's Barbecue has held several fundraisers for the team, cheering them on all the  way.
 
"It's exciting to be watching, my whole family, we're all from Hamilton, we all still live in Hamilton, we'll be here forever, and it's exciting to see what it does to people," Rooney said.
 
Moeller says it's a win win for the team and the city.
 
"It has unified this city it has energized this city," Moeller said.
 
It's still not over the all-stars, they face off against Hawaii at 4pm Wednesday.
