Little League, Big Dreams


Published:

Hawai‘i still remembers the day last year when its keiki shined as the reigning Little League World Series champions. Splashed across front-page news and commanding national airtime, the West O‘ahu Little League All Stars triumphed over the Pabou Little League of Wilemstad, Curaçao, in a show of some hardcore aloha. If you wished you were with the team of 11-year-olds from the beginning, now you can be, by reading Charles Euchner’s Little League, Big Dreams (Sourcebooks, Inc., $22.95). True, Euchner mistakenly identifies pidgin as the Hawaiian language and blurs Hawai‘i residents with Native Hawaiians, but the account of the 2005 season is still a worthy tribute to the All Stars and the sport of Little League baseball. In the book’s examination of Little League culture and the forces that will it, Euchner devotes 24 pages—a whole chapter—to the story of the All Stars and their coach, Layton Aliviado. If you want to be taken out to the ball game, Little League, Big Dreams is not a bad place to look. Sold at Borders Bookstores.
