Video: One win away from US championship, Seattle Little League coach talks strategy, managing the parents

Aug 22, 2023, 1:29 PM

A Little League team in Northeast Seattle could be headed all the way to the top.

Dr. Christian Shewey is a dentist by trade, but coaches his son’s Little League team by night. And lately, he’s had to take time away from his practice as the boys have steadily risen to only one win away from the US championship game.

He joined The Gee and Ursula Show on the phone from Texas to talk about keeping the kids grounded through the national media attention, managing the parallel team of awesome and supportive parents, and his own baseball history as a catcher at the University of Washington in the ’90s.

“You’re already winners,” Ursula Reutin said. “And as a View Ridge mom, I’m especially proud.”
