PeterMongillo of KOMO has posted the below video on YouTube from the 1982 Kirkland Little League World Series Championship team. The video is a rather raw mix of cut archives but fun to watch as it shows scenes of Kirkland from yesteryear.
Note the pride and joy evident in the champs faces and crowds of Kirklanders cheer for the players. If you look closely, you may note aerial footage of the parade route along Kirkland Avenue prior to construction of the Kirkland Library, showing a glimpse of the Kirkland Hospital where the Heathman Hotel stands today.You may also note scenes depicting the Kirkland Hardware store, people standing on the roof of the Marina Park Pavilion as well as some great haircuts... Well done!
This video is a mix of raw and cut stories of the 1982 Kirkland LLWS Champs, with the exception that some parts of the stories are missing in the archives.
If you were on that team back in 1982, contact me as I would love to talk to you about your experience!
