Suffolk little leaguers headed to states

The Bennett’s Creek Little League Majors, 11-12, went undefeated in District 6 and are slated to represent the city and District 6 in the state tournament hosted by District 12 July 19-24 in Roanoke.

If the Little Leaguers take care of business in Roanoke, they will head down to Georgia for the regional tournament. Out of the 36 players, 13 were able to make All-Stars.

The boys will get enjoy a memorable opening ceremony on July 19 and will play games July 20-22.

Depending upon their standing, they could advance to the finals to be played with a double elimination on July 23-24. They will also attend a minor league game.

They have to raise money to cover their expenses, and they are doing it through GoFundMe. Donations are being accepted at www.gofundme.com/help-bcll-boys-go-to-states.
