How does the sit-down sit with Byun today? "When I sat, I had nothing on my mind except that the result was unfair and that all my hard training had gone down the drain," he says. "Looking back, I think it was a childish thing to do."
Before a recent Little League game in Kirkland, Wash., a father took his son to shake hands with the opposing coach. That coach was Webster, who threw a two-hitter against Taiwan to give Kirkland the 1982 Little League World Series title. "Things like that are nice," says Webster, 32, who works at a home-supply store in nearby Woodinville. "Every day it seems what we did in 1982 gets more special." Though he could throw the ball 75 mph as a 5'7", 175-pound 12-year-old, Webster never threw it much harder and quit playing before his sophomore year at Eastern Washington.
