TC Little League is Off to State Finals

A big honor for local little league players.

The Traverse City East baseball team, 9 and 10 age group, has advanced to the state final tournament.

The team’s head coach says these kids have worked hard for the past six weeks to move onto the finals.

He says a good balance of teamwork between the boys helped get them there.

All of these kids were considered the best on their teams during regular season, and they’re excited to get to experience this tournament.

“When you consider that there are 16 districts and only one team can advance from each district, and them to have the opportunity to do that and be representing district eight, and even more so Traverse City and the East side, is really special for them and I really want them to enjoy it and take it in,” said Head Coach Joe Palamara. 

Their first game will be played on Friday in Grand Rapids.
