This Little League coach says it all

After losing a game at the Little League World Series to the Chicago team, and leaving contention, coach Dave Belisle of the Rhode Island team gives his players an after game pep talk, one that says it all. Maybe the best I have ever heard. Watching it last night, I think I had tears in my eyes.

Video as well as text of his talk. Listen to it all the way through.

That almost brought tears to my eyes!

Our house has been watching the LLWS and those kids and coaches were more dedicated than some pros.

They all did an awesome job.

Truly inspiring. I also volunteer and coach at my local little league. I learn just as much from these boys as they do from us. This coach has inspired me to continue helping at this level and helping today's youth learn the valuable skill of teamwork and playing as ONE. Great job coach and congratulations to RI for making that far. Living in New England, I'm proud Cumberland RI was there to represent us!
