Imagine the "Jaws" theme, but with more shushing and giggling.
When not playing, team players often can be found wandering around the stadium. Not far behind them are the gaggles of girls, determined to get an autograph, a picture or just a "hello."
For three girls from Scranton visiting the Little League Baseball World Series on Monday, it became a challenge they overcame.
The rainy day was the first time Maeve Gleason saw the Series and her favorite part of the day was following the teams.
"We chased players," Gleason said. "We stalked the Mid-Atlantic team."
They were right behind the team, which provided them with a perfect opportunity to wave and get pictures.
Still, just because the baseball players are being watched by thousands and stalked by some does not necessarily mean they like the attention.
"They looked at us like we were creepy," Gleason said.
Emma Gilroy's "dream" team was Great Lakes, whom she had seen play on television.
She met most of the players before their 8 p.m. game, when she used the opportunity to tell them that she loved them. She also wished them luck and said she was their No. 1 fan.
Gilroy, who has a boyfriend back home, said that all she wants out of "stalking" the various teams is a chance to make a new friend.
"We like baseball players," she said.
"We love baseball players," her friend Emily Glogowski said."(But) I love baseball, too."
Besides, at 15 years old, Gilroy said she was too old for the players anyway.
Their dedication to the sport was put to the test with the arrival of storms throughout the day. During the storm that delayed the Europe vs. Midwest game, the girls ran around Lamade Stadium trying to find shelter, instead of sitting in their wet seats on the nearby hill.
When the rain began to fall later during the game, a few "big drops" fell, but they stayed put in their seats, which they were determined to do.
For Glogowski, who saw the Series for the first time live on Monday but watched on TV "since (she) was born," having the event in her home state was an experience that she appreciated.
"Not everybody gets an opportunity to do this," she said. "There are people from all over the world here."
The girls knew that they were not the only people trying to meet the players, but that did not matter to Glogowski because there are so many people at the Series.
"There are a lot of teams," she said, as she began listing all of the teams other girls could try to meet.
