But the manager of the Harlem Little League, Morris McWilliams, was not amused by the player's antics. He told the player that good sportsmanship involves not rubbing winning in anyone's face. "When you hit a home run, you run the bases graciously."
Although McWilliams is aware of young athletes' fascination with professional sports stars' personal stylistic trademarks when they play the games of their passions, he is concerned with the moral substance of the athletic experience for youth.
He is obviously doing something right. His Harlem team progressed through the tournament structure of U.S. Little League with its more than seven thousand teams to only be eliminated from competition after being judged as of the four best teams in the United States.
McWilliams, a former Little League player himself in his home town of Baltimore, Maryland, had the pleasure and challenge of watching his own son Julian play on the historic team. He got involved in the youth league in 1992 when Julian's older brother Drew joined the Little League and his dad became a parent coach. When the head coach passed away two years later, McWilliams took over as manager of the team.
The winning team has brought him great satisfaction away from the basepaths since many of the youngsters come from single parent homes and he has had an opportunity to influence their lives in many other areas.
McWilliams learned much from his own father about integrity-a lesson that came in handy when his team's legitimacy was challenged by some protests that some of the players lived outside the boundaries of the designated boundaries. After examination of the players' documentation all players were found eligible. McWilliams says that the mid-tournament controversy reinforced a lesson he learned from his own father: don't live your life in a fashion that requires looking over your shoulder-be honest.

He is presently vice president of sales for PMG Media. He feels that black professionals should take time to give back to their communities. But he doesn't see it as a sacrifice since he gets "the warm fuzzies of life just by helping one child."
