LITTLE LEAGUE WORLD SERIES
PA (August 18, 2007)… Game Seven of the 2007 Little League World

Championship. After stealing third, Seth Windmuller scored for
Salisbury. “I always tell myself not to swing at the first pitch
unless it’s right up the middle,” said West’s Seth Fretheim when
asked about hitting a home run on the first pitch of the game, “It
was right up the middle, so I had to swing at it.”
West’s Luke Parrish started the second inning with a home run
bringing Seth Fretheim and Cody Bellinger with him to make it 7-1
West. Mid-Atlantic’s Craig East hit a home run late in the second
inning brining Seth Windmuller and Scott McGiffin with him scoring
