Kids Receive Speech To Remember


By MEGAN BARRETO

After a heartbreaking 8-7 loss in the Little League World Series, Coach Dave Belisle of the Cumberland American team from Rhode Island delivered a speech to remember to his team, who he referred to as 'his boys' on Monday night.

Belisle huddled his emotional, teary-eyed boys behind first base following the game and reminded them that they had a lot to be proud of and that they "had their hometown jumpin', the whole state jumpin', you had New England jumpin', you had ESPN jumpin.'"

The Providence Journal notes that Belisle was just as emotional as the boys, saying "It's easy for me to coach like that when you have such wonderful kids that dedicate themselves, that respect you as much as I respect them ... They gave me a summer of my life that I'll never forget."

Belisle capped his speech off with "I love you guys,'' he said. "I'm going to love you forever. You've given me the most precious moment of my athletic and coaching career, and I've been coaching a long time. I'm getting to be an old man, I need memories like this, I need kids like this. You're all my boys. You'll be the boys of summer."
