Something Lighter From My Past (1975 Little League World Series)

There are so many important things happening in the world right now and particularly in the United States. I know many of our readers will wonder why I am publishing this post today. The answer is because I simply needed to take a mental vacation from all the corruption taking place in the world. I promise it will still be there tomorrow.

I recently got my hands on a 41 year old movie of the 1975 Little League World Series that took place in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The movie is special to me because I was a member of that team. For many years I tried to locate a copy of the network telecast of this game without any success. I even attempted to contact ABC television, the company that broadcast the game nationally in 1975, and was unsuccessful.

After cleaning out my parents’ home not too long ago, I unexpectedly uncovered a canister that contained a 10 minute movie that was marked, “Little League Championship Game.” I was very excited to see the film but lacked the necessary movie projector to do so. After taking the film to a company that could transfer its contents onto a DVD, I was finally able to see the highlights of this historical game.

In 1978, at the age of 15, I wrote and published a short book about our championship season titled, “Once In A Lifetime: The Story of A National Championship Little League Team”. The book, over the years, became the official record of the 1975 Lakewood Little League Team.

I recently uploaded the movie onto YouTube so that all the people of Lakewood, New Jersey could enjoy the footage that has been locked away in my parents’ attic for 41 years. I am not sure who made the film, but very thankful that they did.

To my former teammates and friends that experienced with me this magical ride in 1975, this video is for you!
