Cubs, Pirates set for Little League Classic in Williamsport

The Pittsburgh Pirates might be in a better place to enjoy the spirit of the Little League Classic, the Sunday night game in Williamsport, Pa., while the Chicago Cubs can't take their eyes off the race for the National League Central title.

The Pirates have fallen with a thud into last place in the NL Central, going 7-26 since the All-Star break, so the special game Sunday -- and the full day of events connected to it -- can be the center of attention.

The teams will spend the day in Williamsport, meeting with young players and participating in various events.
