We learned last Friday just how amazing our Lufkin Little League baseball team is, when they scored 12 runs in the bottom of the first inning. Yikes! There was no way Oklahoma was going to overcome a hole that big, and the Lufkin Little League all-star team won 14-1 at the Southwest Regional Tournament in Waco.

There have been other wins and losses in pool play over the past few days, including a big win Monday night against Colorado. If the team had lost that game, the season would have been over. They beat Colorado that night, and Louisiana yesterday to move to the final round.

This Friday, our Lufkin All-Stars will play on National TV in the regional finals, for the chance to go to the Little League World Series.

If you’re not driving to Waco for the game, you can watch the Lufkin team at 7pm Friday on ESPN2.

If they win that game, they move onto the Little League World Series in Williamsport, and the entire tournament will be on national television. The Little League World Series is where 11 and 12 year old players become noticed by Major League Baseball scouts, not to mention create a pretty memorable summer for themselves.

Good luck guys!
