Warren County South baseball fans and family send off players to regionals

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- It was an exciting morning for the Warren County South Little League Baseball players to start off an exciting week.

There was a send off with a police escort for the players as they head to the Great Lakes Regional in Whitestown, Ind. Friday morning.

Proud parents and family members waved goodbye as the 10-12 year olds hit the road. They only have to win three games to make it to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Penn.

News 40 talked to the kids about the exciting opportunity. 

“I wanna win this tournament really bad because it’s been my dream since I was a little kid,” said one player. 

“We have a good defense, we have good pitchers, and we can hit the ball really well,” another player said. 

“I’ve never really been anywhere big with baseball, so this is kinda the first time,” said another player.

Their first game is on Sunday at 9 a.m. To watch games one through seven you can download the ESPN+ app. Games 8-10 will be on ESPN.
