South West (Lufkin All Stars) Wins First WS Game

The Lufkin All-Stars (aka SouthWest) won big 5 – 1 in the Little League World Series game against the Great Lakes team in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Kevin Langford, who Umpires around East Texas, says, “What a night for the whole team. Of note #21 Jack Jones of the Michigan team is my MVP for the game. When Ditsworth hit his HR, Jones was the pitcher and he walked over to the third base line to shake Ditsworth hand as he was running around the bases. GREAT SPORTSMANSHIP!!

KTRE reports Head Coach Bud Maddoux said, “As far as a good-played baseball game, that was a good played baseball game. Hunter was fantastic out there. He kept it under 85 pitches and he had command over his pitches tonight and that’s all you can ask.”

The win moves Lufkin All-Stars to the next round against the New England team. The Game Starts at 10am Sunday Morning.
