It may be a slow news day, but in 30 minutes, Lexington’s own Eastern Little League All-Stars will take on Grosse Pointe Woods-Shores of Michigan in the Great Lakes Regional of the Little League World Series. The game will be televised on ESPN for your viewing pleasure.
On Tuesday, Eastern avoided elimination by beating Wisconsin 10-5 thanks to a sixth inning grand slam by Joey Howard. To become the first Lexington team to claim a spot in the Little League World Series in almost 40 years, Eastern will have to win three games straight. The winner of today’s game will play Ohio in the semifinals Friday at 5 p.m. The loser goes home.
Go Eastern! You got this.
