Lafayette Little League Moves Closer to World Series
Last summer, Lafayette rallied behind a group of 12 year olds who fought their way to an appearance at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA. This summer, the dream continues for the Junior and Senior All Star Teams from the very same park.
The Junior Division is made up of 13 and 14 year olds, and the Seniors are comprised of 15 and 16 year olds – with much of their rosters comprised of Little League veterans from years past. Their journeys to the World Series continues this weekend, after each team won their State finals. Now, they make the long trek to Seguin, TX and Albuquerque, NM for Regional play – with the winners from each, getting a ticket to their respective World Series in Taylor, Michigan and Bangor, Maine. With the high cost of traveling, the challenges they face are not limited to who they face of the field – which is why supporters have set up the 2012 World Series Fund to help our local boys of summer reach their dreams. Contributions to the fund will go towards family travel expenses, and to help our park provide them with the resources needed to be successful. As a Volunteer organization, Lafayette Little League receives no money from the city, and depends on registration fees and community support alone.
