This is the team that continues to accomplish the impossible, and tonight, in just their first season as a Little League organization, the Lufkin All-Stars can punch their ticket to the World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
8 teams went to the Little League Southwest Regional in Waco with hopes of advancing to the World Series in Pennsylvania....4 teams remain, and our very own Lufkin Little League All Stars are still alive.
What a game of some mighty titans. Lufkin took on Lamar, which has been to several World Series in the past years, for the deciding game of the East Texas Region Championship and both teams put on a hitting clinic, but in the end, Lufkin wins 10-8.
How 'bout the Lufkin Little League All Stars? They are just one win away from earning the right to play in the Southwest Regional Tournament in Waco. That's the tournament what will produce this region's representative at the World Series in Williamsport.
