Washington state baseball fans have a team to root for when the Little League World Series opens up this week. Eastlake of Sammamish will represent the Northwest Region after advancing with a 16-to-2 victory over Cody, Wyoming this past weekend.
Eastlake will open up play in Williamsport, Pennsylvania Thursday against Corpus Christi of Texas. The first pitch is scheduled for noon.
According to the Seattle Times, Eastlake has a website to raise money to help parents pay for the trip to Williamsport. The goal is to raise 25-thousand dollars. The website is www.gofundme.com/Eastlake12u.
