CORPUS CHRISTI - The boys of the Universal Little League All Stars are gearing up for their first appearance in the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
Our Drew Collins is in town to get a behind the scenes look at how the players and their families are enjoying the trip to the big show of little league baseball.
The team spent the day practicing for tomorrow's game against a team from Washington state. The Universal Little League All Stars are the first Corpus Christi team to ever to make it to the world series.
They proved to be good enough to compete at the top level with their 10-0 victory last week in the Southwest Regional title game.
Their first game on Thursday starts at 2pm (Central). ESPN will carry the game live.
If they pick up a win, the All Stars will play again Sunday at 1 p.m. But if they lose, they'll play again Saturday at 2 p.m. It's all part of the plan in the double elimination tournament.
If the All Stars make it all the way to the international championship game, they'll play it a week from this Sunday on August 25th.
Let's hope that happens. Good luck to the Universal Little League All Stars!
