Do you believe? Because we do. The 12 little leaguers who collectively stole our hearts and grabbed the nation’s attention during their Little League World Series run took center stage at Citizens Bank Park on Wednesday night prior to the Phillies vs Nationals game. Here’s a recap of the Taney Dragons’ pregame tribute that capped off their historic and unforgettable summer.

#WeBelieveInDragons

The Phillies honored the Taney Dragons not only for being Little League Baseball Mid-Atlantic Regional Champs but also a group of amazing athletes and, most importantly, great kids.

Tons of smiles as the Dragons were greeted by the Phillies. Maybe there are some future Phils in the mix?

Ryan Howard, representing the Phillies organization, congratulated the kids and encouraged them to stop and take a look around – because the night belonged to them. We were honoring the incredible job they did as well as what their success meant to the city.

What’s a visit to a ballpark without a little victory lap jog around the warning track?

Make that a run! They are definitely not lacking speed on the Taney Dragons squad.

All 12 Dragons threw first pitches to members of the Phillies team. Pretty cool and unique moment, right?

We love a good intermingling meet and greet involving some major league hugs.

After parading down Broad Street and being honored in a pregame on-field salute, what’s next? Dancing with everyone’s favorite mascot, of course!

Lucky Dragon?

The Phillies won last night to complete the sweep of the NL East first place Nats. Could these tiny dragons have had an effect? Maybe.
