Wednesday, August 21 at 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN2 will have a special Kidscast alternative experience. Aspiring broadcasters recruited from the Bruce Beck Sports Broadcasting Camp at Iona College will call Game 24 in the U.S. Winner’s Bracket. Sixteen-year-olds Eddie Kalegi and Aiden Blanc will be providing play-by-play in the booth as 15-year-old reporters Zoe Alter and Rahill Jaiswal are on the sidelines. Little League trailblazer Mo’ne Davis, the 2014 Little League Baseball World Series pitching sensation, will make her return to Williamsport and have a hand in the telecast as an analyst. A traditional broadcast of the game will simultaneously broadcast on ESPN.
On Wednesday, ESPN tried something new that had never been done before. The big-name sports network decided to roll out a broadcast team of four aspiring teenage broadcasters to call a Little League World Series game between Hawaii and Virginia.
