WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Our young baseball and softball stars are killing it right now. Tonight our third team celebrated their berth in the world series.
The Winter Park 9U All-Stars are coming off an incredible victory last weekend in the zone championships.
Down to their final out, these kids rose to the challenge down one to win the game and advance to the Pony Baseball World Series.
They leave tomorrow to Southern California to represent North Carolina in a world series tournament featuring teams from across the country and the world.
“Winter Park is a great organization,” Head Coach Brent Bush said. “We’re thrilled to represent them, but to represent Wilmington and North Carolina as well is amazing. I don’t know that it’s sunk in for everyone just yet.”
The tournament begins friday with the championship game monday.
Good luck to all the all-stars!
