    Should Chula Vista advance, they would be the third team from San Diego County in the last nine years to make it to Williamsport.

    The excitement is building for the Park View Little League All-Star team from Chula Vista.

    The team is now one game away from going to the Little League World Series and they're a home run hitting machine.

    The Park View Little leaguers flexed their muscles again and pounded Las Vegas with a quick 15-2 defeat in the Western Regional semifinals in San Bernardino on Friday. The win has family and friends at a fever pitch in the South Bay.

    “I'm going to tell him congratulations and that I'm so excited to see him on TV can't wait to see what happens Sunday,” a friend of one of the players said.

    The Park View Little league team seems unstoppable.

    Others are trying to keep their head in the game.

     “You should never doubt the other team, you never know, they could come back,” a fan said.

    A couple celebrating their 16th wedding anniversary was in the crowd Friday night and said their secret to a happy marriage is teamwork and communication. Much like baseball. 

    The team from Chula Vista advances to the championship game on Sunday against either Northern California or Arizona. The winner of that game on Sunday will travel to Williamsport. Sunday's game starts at 5 p.m. in San Bernardino. 

    Should Chula Vista advance; they would be the third team from San Diego County in the last nine years to make it to Williamsport. Oceanside American made it in 2001, and a team from Rancho Buena Vista Little League in Vista made the trip in 2005.
