Congrats to Warner Robbins! Yesterday, they beat Lubbock (TX) for the United States Little League Championship:
For a second consecutive year, a team from Georgia will play a team from Japan for the World Series title. Warner Robins will play Tokyo Kitasuna Little League for the title of world’s finest Little League team. Last year, the all-stars from Columbus Northern Little League, many of whom were in the stands Saturday cheering on Warner Robins, beat Kawaguchi City.
With a victory over Tokyo, Warner Robins American would become the third Georgia team to win the series title.
The game is Sunday at 3:30 p.m.
“Unbelievable,” said Warner Robins coach Mickey Lay, who admitted he wasn’t even sure his team would get out of the state tournament.
The game was played an estimated 24,200, including Gov. Sonny Perdue, first lady Mary Perdue, Texas Tech basketball coach Bobby Knight (Texas Tech is in Lubbock) and several Warner Robins fans who arrived in Williamsport Saturday morning after driving through the night.
