Transcript for Rhode Island Coach's Winning Spirit is a Homerun Despite Loss in Little League World Series
And finally tonight, rising from defeat. Last night, the little league team from Rhode Island suffered a heart-breaking loss to Chicago at the little league world series. But through their tears comes a lesson for everyone about new hope for a new day. Here's ABC's John donvan. Reporter: Two ways Dave Belisle told his little league team to think about baseball this week -- one was about how to win. Saturday, when they were down by two, going into the bottom of the last inning in an elimination game of the little league world series -- and be-lyle gave his boys this talk, in bits and pieces. We're putting three on the board. We are not going to go down without fighting. We're winning this game. Reporter: And here's what his players, average age 12, gave their coach. An explosion. And the win. This ball to left-center -- it's by the outfielder! And Rhode Island is going to win it! Reporter: And then on Monday, against another team, strike three. They lost this time. Out of the series. And when be-lyle noticed some of the boys crying, then he found something to say about how to lose. I got to see your eyes, guys. Reporter: It's with your head up. There's no disappointment, okay? And your effort? Okay? In the whole tournament, in the whole season? It's been an incredible journey. Reporter: And it's with remembering how much did work. We got down to the nitty-gritty. We're one of the best teams in the world. Reporter: And it's recognizing what they did win. You guys are going to bring back something, okay, that no other team can provide but you guys. And that's pride. Okay? Pride. Reporter: And so, their final huddle ended with the lesson that sometimes it is how you play the game. I want everyone to come in here for one big hug. Reporter: John donvan, ABC news, Washington.
