Where Are They Now - 2006:
Stories of past Softball World Series players.

 I just wanted to let the softball world series organization know that the 2006 winners of the the Softball World Series, from Mattawan, Michigan are having their 10 year reunion in Mattawan on August 20th. All the girls, but one will be attending!     Mattawan has kept the record of being the the only team in Michigan to win the World Series and the only team to give up only 2 runs in the history of Softball Little League World Series (might want to fact check it, but we are pretty sure). We thought it would be great if you could post something on the website or mention it at the final games this year. It was a great privilege for all these girls to participate in and the organization is very well run and every little girl should experience it! We want to thank everyone involved and we all still watch every year! I was the team mom for our team and very proud still. 
For the record we had 8 out of the 11 girls go on to play College softball at various colleges. Our girls were a rare team between the parents and the girls we had an amazing chemistry and cohesiveness that got us through the whole journey! 
Thank you!

Freshman, Jesse Moore is pitching in the State of Oregon High School, Class 6A, 2009 championship game Saturday 6/5/09. Jesse played for the Cedar Mill Little League at the Little League Softball World Series in 2005 and 2006.
My name is Deanna DeVito; I played first base in the 2006 Little League World Series for the East team, along with my identical twin sister Samantha, who played right field. This year, my sister and I played on the varsity high school softball team in Pequannock New Jersey, which also included some of the girls from the 2006 East team. Our team won four titles: 2009 Conference Champs, 2009 County Champs, 2009 North Group II Section Champs, and 2009 State Champs. I am going to be a junior for the upcoming 2009-2010 school year. I still keep in touch with my host family and we fly out to visit each whenever we can. Being a part of Little League and being in the World Series has given me an experience that most kids dream being a part of. This memory will last a lifetime! Thank you so much!
Hello my name is Bekka Crow. I was a member of the 2006 little league world series champion team from Mattawan, Michigan.  My Junior year of high school was eventful for our varsity team.  With 8 of the girls from the 2006 team on this varsity team, we knew that we were going to have a great year.  We were District Champs this year and made it to the finals for regionals and unfortunately lost.  Going into my senior year, we are hoping to be State champs.  Everyone still stays in contact and 3 of the world series girls from 2006 already have full rides for softball going into our Senior year of high school. (:  The little league world series was amazing and a once in a lifetime experience for us all.  We made so many friends from the other teams and we still stay in contact with our host families.  Alpenrose will forever be a great memory for us all and something we will never forget!

Frank Smith here, coach of Team Canada 2006.  I just wanted to report to you on the success of my daughters Janelle and Mckenzie – who both had the great pleasure of playing on Team Canada in the Little League Softball World Series.
Janelle played in 2003.  Today she is a Junior at Frank Phillips College in Borger, Texas. She is on an athletic scholarship.  Last season she enjoyed more success than any other player from her college program, being named to the all-star team for both her conference and region!
Her younger sister Mckenzie hit a grand slam in your tournament in 2006.  In 2010, she won Canada’s Bantam Girls “Top Batter” award at Nationals.  This past summer she was one of 24 players invited to Softball Canada’s Junior Team Selection Camp.  Today she is on her “official visit” to Stanford University.  Mckenzie will be the first Canadian to play softball at Stanford, where she will go in 2012. 
The World Series was a wonderful experience for both my daughters, and myself.  Thank you to everyone who is involved in hosting this great tournament.
