A Chamber Exec's LL World Series Star
Over the past few weeks, Doug Holman, vice president of the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, says he's "become very familiar with Cloud Nine" and "living the dream of a lifetime." Over the weekend, his son Grant was part of the Chula Vista, Calif., team playing in the championship game of the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa.
Although Japan took home the prize, Grant got some major props from the media for his talent on the mound. Columnist Mike Chiari of the bleacherreport.com wrote, "Truth be told, Holman has done a little bit of everything for Chula Vista in this tournament. Not only has his pitching been spectacular, but he has also been swinging a hot bat. According to SportsCenter, he has already accomplished three incredible feats in the Little League World Series, which likely makes him the envy of every other player."
Check out this column from bleacherreport.com which highlighted Grant as one of the "three players with the best chance to gain Little League World Series immortality."
