The Little League World Series brings the best teams of the world together for several days of uninterrupted baseball, which culminate in a game between the United States champs versus the international champs. What happened Monday after the Latin America (Venezuela) vs. Caribbean (Dominican Republic) game showed what baseball and sportsmanship can do to bring people together. After a very competitive game between the two teams, Caribbean pitcher Edward Uceta collapsed in tears on the mound when Latin America player secured a triple play giving Latin America a walk-off victory. In response to Uceta’s reaction, Latin America coaches and players flooded the pitcher’s mound and consoled Uceta.

The Latin America team, represented by Venezuela, scored a 3-2 walk-off victory against the Caribbean team, represented by the Dominican Republic.

Latin America had been trailing Caribbean 2-1 for most of the game. After a very competitive game between the two teams, Caribbean pitcher Edward Uceta collapsed in tears on the mound when a Latin America player hit a triple, giving Latin America a walk-off victory. In response to Uceta’s tears, coaches and players from the opposing team flooded the pitcher’s mound to console Uceta.

“Edward has a big heart. It was sad,” Venezuela manager Alexander Ballesteros told the press, according ABC Sports. “It could have happened to anyone. It could have happened to our own ‘Little [Jose] Altuve’ here, [Romero].”

Just goes to show that no matter how competitive, things might get on the field, there is always time for true sportsmanship.

The kind moment wasn’t lost on the fans, who tend to get pretty competitive on social media.

You just have to respect a competitor who lays it all out on the field during a game.

It truly was a moment of pride for Latinos and baseball fans all over the world.

Bien hecho.

After Blessing Us With The Latin Trap Mix Of ‘Bodak Yellow,’ Cardi B’s Summer Banger Moves To #1 On The Hot Rap Songs Chart

Last Friday, Cardi B. dropped the Latin Trap Mix of her hit song “Bodak Yellow.” Featuring rapper Messiah, who drops a pretty vicious verse, the song sees Cardi B. totally digging deep into her Dominican roots and spitting in Spanish. This is especially dope since she first previewed the song at the Dominican Day Parade this month. In full DR attire, she rapped the new song and repped her people on a float. The crowd screamed her lyrics back at her and Cardi B. twerked her heart out. Now the remix is picking up steam. It was just announced today that she has moved into the top spot on Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs — another first for the rapper.

Just as important for her and the success of the song, was moving up on the U.S. Latino charts — which, duh, she did.

She made it to #6 on Apple Music with her Latin Trap mix of “Bodak Yellow.”

There’s no way to know how many more accolades the new version of the already huge song will attain, but as we learned with “Despacito,” having both Latino and crossover appeal can be the real key to a song’s continued success.

We can’t wait to see what the future has in store for Cardi B. and her bloody shoes. ?
