You would think the Little League World Series would be all about the baseball.
For Jenson Rundio, of Williamsport, it's also about the pins.
Rundio started collecting when she was given a set of jersey pins.
"People started giving me pins," she said as she sat outside the Sun-Gazette building shortly after the Grand Slam Parade Wednesday night.
Since the gifted pins, she has grown her collection by trading and purchasing a few.
So, how many does she have?
"A lot," she said. "A big book full."
Her favorite pin is a My Little Pony pin, which she received by trading her mother's Roosevelt Middle School pin.
"They're cute!" Rundio said.
Rundio, who is going into the ninth grade at Williamsport Area High School, usually trades her pins at the Genetti Hotel, where swaps are hosted.
At the swaps, she has met a variety of people of all different ages interested in showing off and acquiring new pins for their collection.
"I just like going and trading," Rundio said. "It gives you something to do."
