Sioux Falls Little League Team Gets Front Row Seat to Cardinals and Pirates in Williamsport
It has been a magical season for the Sioux Falls Little League team and a trip to Willaimsport has been a dream come true for all involved.
That dream got even better on Sunday night as they were a part of the crowd at the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates game played at the local minor league stadium.
Major League Baseball helped the stadium get a makeover for the game and create a one of a kind experience for all the teams in attendance.
For the Sioux Falls Little League team, that experience included front row seats to the game right behind home plate.
If you look to the first few rows behind home plate, all the players and coaches in the yellow hats are from the Sioux Falls Little League team.

Jeff Riley is the self proclaimed biggest Pirates fan from South Dakota and just so happens to be the teams manager. When I asked him about the great seats on Sunday night, he said he was “pretty blessed”.
Indeed he is and we’ve been blessed here in Sioux Falls to watch this group of young guys captivate our attention over the last few weeks.
It is great they are being rewarded with a sweet night at the ballpark with some sweet seats watching a MLB game in Williamsport.
