A New Win for Louisiana Little Leaguers

From https://youtu.be/XQUvIkiFf24

In what was a barn-burner of a baseball game for everyone watching, Louisiana’s Eastbank Little League team, straight from River Ridge, defeated Central East Maui of Hawaii, to become the U.S. Championship holders

The team, made up of mostly 12-year-olds, move on to face the team from Curaçao in the World Championship game on Sunday, August 25th. The tournament, played in Pennsylvania since 1947, now features the first Greater New Orleans team to make it to the series. 

The victory, 9 – 5 by the final inning, was hard-fought, being scoreless until the fifth, when Louisiana began racking up some runs. The teams then traded more scores in what could best be described as breathless moments, until the last few moments secured the win. 

The World Championship game starts at 2 PM on WGNO this Sunday afternoon.
