WARNER ROBINS -- The 7-8-year-old West All-Star team from Warner Robins American Little League proved it had grit Tuesday in the Southern Sectional baseball tournament.
Down 7-3 going into the final at-bats in the top of the sixth inning against Columbus Northern Little League, the WRALL players rallied to win 10-7.
I never stopped telling them we would win, manager Jeremy Avery said.
From a spectacular catch from center fielder Chaz Sturn to a play by catcher Cohen Ingle to throw out a runner trying to steal second base in the bottom of the final inning, the players did everything they could to help themselves overcome the four-run deficit.
They all believe, Avery said.
With the win, WRALL West will again face Columbus Northern for the Southern Sectional championship at 7 p.m. on Wednesday at WRALL Field 4.
