I know this may have slid under the radar for some folks, but Bowling Green Eastern Little League won the Great Lakes Region over the weekend, therefore securing the team a trip to the Little League World Series which gets underway this Thursday in Willamsport, PA.

Here are highlights of their championship win over Wisconsin. Wow! Bowling Green Eastern will take on the West Region winner, Sweetwater Valley (California) at 6:00 pm local time this Thursday, August 20th. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2.

This will be the first time since 2011 (North Oldham LL) a Kentucky team will go to Willamsport. Valley Sports out of Louisville won the Little League World Series in 2002. Owensboro's Southern LL made consecutive trips to the LLWS in 2004-2005.
