Hi It's Jayne Ann Bugda from the "Producer Pod"

  Here's what we are working  on for Eyewitness News for  August 19, 2014. 
  The other sports are just sports. Baseball is a love. ~Bryant Gumbel, 1981

  I love baseball...especially Yankee Baseball. But can we talk about Little League World Series baseball and the emotional roller coaster it is!  I am currently cheering on every team there- I can't handle it when those youngsters cry!  Becky Stitzer, of the WBRE/WYOU Promotions fame- feels the same way-  I hope Becky and I make it through this World Series- Go Team!  All of them!
