A Missouri Little Leaguer clearly has his priorities straight when it comes to dream jobs. The young player has a unique but iconic answer.
The phrase “kids say the darndest things” certainly applies to a Missouri Little Leaguer competing in the Little League World Series Midwest regionals.
When he came up to bat, his lower third on ESPN revealed his dream job is a “chicken nugget taste tester.”
His dream of becoming a chicken nugget taste tester may come true in due time, but one dream is certainly getting closer to coming true. Missouri is getting closer to making it to the Little League World Series.

Missouri Little League beat Iowa 3-1 on Wednesday morning, making it one step closer to achieving the dream of making it to the LLWS. The team is taking each game day by day, and their strategy is clearly working well.
Missouri’s team captain Bratie Holland told ESPN, “We really were just hitting the ball like we have been. Brock (Hulstine) was great on the mound today. We are just playing our game every game.”
Holland is a noticeable star on the Missouri Little League team. He hit extremely well and has eight RBIs in three Midwest Region Games.
Holland told Derek Shore of the Joplin Globe, “I do what’s comfortable. My dad keeps talking about how my swing looks like Ken Griffey Jr. I just do what’s comfortable.”
The young kids may have many years before seeing if their dream jobs come true, but they are almost certain to achieve their little league dreams soon.
