Little League World Series is a joke

Earlier today I saw that Mexico was due to play Germany at noon. So I tune in, expecting to see Mexican boys and German boys playing baseball.

Not so. The Mexican team is full of Mexicans, but the Germans? They are all Americans from Ramstein AFB. Don't call them Germans, call them Ramsteins.

Yesterday, the Saudia Arabians also turned out to be American kids. So again, they aren't "Saudi Arabia", they should be called "American kids from Saudi."

I don't begrudge American kids overseas the opportunity to play baseball and get into the World Series, but I'd rather see the actual kids of the country playing baseball.

To call American kids by the term "Germany" or "Saudi Arabia" is misleading and ridiculous.
