the little league world series' first girl gamewinner

A girl playing in the Little League World Series? Yes. Hell yes. Not only can girls play in the World Series, one of them is winning games for her country: Katie Reyes becomes first girl gamewinner at Little League WS.

In what tournament organizers said was most likely a LLWS first, 13-year-old Katie Reyes hit a game-winning two-RBI single in Canada's 14-13 win over Germany on Tuesday in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Fifteen girls have played in the LLWS since 1984, but apparently none had logged the game's top highlight until Reyes had three hits and three RBIs on Tuesday. She also caught the game's final out at first base.

Reyes began playing baseball about six years ago after watching her brother, and she's never played softball. And now she's kicking ass for Canada. More on yesterday's game: Canada gets wild 14-13 win over Germany at LLWS.
