This Coach's Post Game Speech A Winner

Coach Dave Belisle
The coach of the Little League team from Rhode Island, the Cumberland American All-Stars, Dave Belisle, gave one of the greatest post game speech's I have ever seen after his Little League team played the Jackie Robinson West team from Chicago, in an elimination game in the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA.  

No, Belisle's team did not win the game, they lost a heart breaker to the team from Chicago, 8-7 and that loss eliminated  them in the Little League World Series, but his speech was a winner. 

What an emotional moment for these young kids and for the coach, and the coach showed great leadership in making this strong, positive speech that I am sure these kids will remember for the rest of their lives. 

The Cumberland American All-Stars
These boys from Rhode Island lost a baseball game, but their great coach made sure they will go back home as winners.

Thanks to ESPN and Sports Center for this video.
