Westside Little League all-stars could head to World Series

By Tiffany Teasley – bio | email

HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - It seems the Westside Little League All-stars just keeps pumping out top notch players. Three years ago they went to the Little League World Series in Pennsylvania, and now a new group of all stars could be headed there again.

"Can't even really imagine it, it would be awesome," said Cole Heflin, a player on the team.

They're gearing up for a  week long trip to Indianapolis  for regionals. If they win there, they're headed to the big stage.
 
"They've been together for three years now, and they've won three consecutive state titles, and they're not satisfied," said Asst. Coach Tim Robinson.
 
Parents players and coaches gathered to send them off Thursday afternoon.
 
"A little nervous, more confident and ready," Heflin said.
 
This group of 12-year-olds were just 10 when they watched the 2007 team advance to the Little League World Series, now they're following in they're footsteps.
 
"Long practices, like two a day sometimes," Heflin said.
 
 Coaches say  it's their hard work and dedication that got them here.
 
"You know, we're going over with the attitude that we're not finished yet, and it's time to go," Robinson said.
