Following a difficult loss in the Little League World Series, Rhode Island coach David Belisle gave his young players a speech that some may remember for a life time.
The speech given by Belisle aired on ESPN following the Cumberland, Rhode Island teams loss to Illinois by a 8-7 score.
“I’m gonna bring back with me and the coaching staff are gonna bring back and you guys are gonna bring back something no other team can provide but you guys, and that’s pride. Pride. You’re gonna take that for the rest of our life, what you provided for a town in Cumberland. You had the whole place jumping. You had the whole state jumping. You had New England jumping. You had ESPN jumping. You know why? Because they like fighters.
