Oddly enough, another Eastlake Little League will represent the West Region. Those kids are from Chula Vista. They lost to a team from Northern California last Wednesday, but fought back to beat those same kids from Belmont on Saturday to advance to Williamsport.
These two teams join six others from the US and eight international squads for the two week tournament.
Pool play begins on Thursday. The championship game between the US and International champions is set for 25 Aug.
I root for all the kids to do the best they can and enjoy the experience. Play fair, strive to win, but win or lose, do your best.
Check some of these games out, if you get the chance. You won't regret it.
