Eastbank Little League star, Reece Roussel, joins Matt and Ryan to talk about what it’s been like gaining fame since the start of the tournament.
“Oh it’s awesome, I get so many messages on instagram, snapchat, texts,” Roussel said.
Roussel is two hits away from breaking the LLWS record for most hits in the tournament. The Eastbank slugger will have two games to do it.
So outside of the baseball what is Roussel’s favorite part about Williamsport?
“The rec room, there’s ping pong tables, cornhole, video games,” Roussel said.
Roussel is currently hitting .764 (13 for 17). Has he ever been this hot in his life?
“No not ever in my life,” Roussel said. “I go up to the plate, clear my mind and wait for my pitch, if it’s not my pitch I take it until two strikes.”
So normally when younger athletes gain fame like this someone famous reaches out. Today Roussel got a message from his favorite player.
“Today Alex Bregman sent a video,” Roussel said.
