Cry like everybody's watching.
After their 7-8 loss to Chigago on Monday night, Rhode Island Little League coach Dave Belisle pulled his Cumberland team behind 1st base to deliver an incredibly inspirational speech.
With most of his team caught on camera crying from their defeat, Belisle told the kids:
"The only reason why I'll probably end up shedding a tear is because this is the last time I'm going to end up coaching you guys. But I'm going to bring back with me ... and you guys are going to bring back, something that no other team can provide but you guys, and that's pride. Pride.
You're going to take back for the rest of your life what you provided for a town in Cumberland. You had the whole place jumping. You had the whole state jumping. You had New England jumping. You had ESPN jumping. Because you wanna know why? They like fighters. They like sportsmen. They like guys that don't quit. They like guys that play the right way. "
Watch the whole inspirational speech here:
All right, little athletes. Now you can wipe your tears, go home to a parade, and tell everyone you were only crying because your coach delivered such an amazing speech.
