Celebration planned for Western Little League team

A celebration is planned Saturday for the state champion Western Little League softball team.

The celebration will take place 5-7 p.m. at Western Little League Park, 6020 Western Circle, said league president Keith Radcliff. It will begin with some local leaders speaking, he said, then there will be a “meet and greet” with the players.

The team of 11- and 12-year-olds from Bibb County won the championship Wednesday and will represent Georgia in the Little League Softball Southeastern Regional Tournament to be held in Warner Robins starting Wednesday.

Western’s first game will be 7 p.m. Thursday against North Carolina.
