It's not the first time a team has gone this far, but it's always welcomed.
According to Gary Tremelling, Manager of 12-year-old All-Stars there are 14 little leagues within District 44 (where Campbell LL plays) and each has an All-Star team. Campbell Little League has made it to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Penn. three times, but has yet to capture the title.
The 12-year-olds have made it, once more and will play their second game in the District 44 Little League Major Division Tournament of Champions this Thursday, June 28 at 5:00 p.m. in Sunnyvale.
"I am very proud of our team and the way the boys have come together," Tremelling said in an email.
In order to be part of the "All-Star" team, players are chosen by the players and managers in the Major Division, he said. Out of 49 players, 13 were picked for this team.
"We have only played one All-Star game so far (June 21) together and unfortunately lost 1-0 in 7 innings," Tremelling said. "Our next game is this coming Thursday and we are hoping for a victory. We have a great bunch of boys and we hope to take it to the end and win another flag for Campbell Little League."
