Sportsmanship Fundamental at EEBA

Sunday, August 1, 2021
ANYONE WHO HAS EVER played in a Little League baseball game, or coached or attended one, knows that shaking hands with the other team immediately afterward is standard operating procedure. The ice cream truck can wait. Ditto for the post-game pep talk. And the running around the bases. All of it takes a back seat to sportsmanship. According to Little League International, there is no hard-and-fast rule mandating that opposing teams shake hands following each contest. But there is photographic evidence of the post-game shake at the Little League World Series dating back to the late 1940s. -ESPN
