Where to Watch the Taney Dragons in the Little League World Series

View as Map

Even if you don't usually get into sports, you're probably going to want to drop everything tonight to watch the Taney Dragons continue their gripping Little League World Series run. 2014 Mid-Atlantic Little League champs in just their second season as an officially chartered Little League team, the Dragons have been inspiring major sports fervor while our pro teams have been leaving an awful lot to be desired.

So check out our guide below and cheer on the Dragons as their quarterfinal game against Mountain Ridge (Nevada) airs on ESPN at 7:30 p.m. tonight (Here's the full bracket with an explanation of the format.) In the meantime, check out ESPN's Sport Science analyzing the impressive form and velocity of Dragon's star pitcher, 13 year-old Mo'ne Davis. (She even landed the cover of Sports Illustrated this week.)

Are you showing the game at your bar? Hit us up via the tipline or on Twitter to be added — and make sure to include any special deals you're running for the game.

While many of the NoLibs bars we called to research who was showing the first Taney game gave us an answer along the lines of "What? Um, if it's on ESPN, sure, you can always ask the bartender to put it on," the 700 opened their doors early for the Dragons' first game. That speaks to their enthusiasm (and we don't think there's any soccer at 7:30, anyway).
