The Eastlake Little League All-Stars roster includes Grant Holman, Jake Espinoza, Micah Wiggs, Michael Gaines, Kevin Bateman, Rennard Williams, Dominic Haley, Charly Peterson, Giancarlo Cortez, Nick Mora, Patrick Archer and Ricky Tibbett.

The team will have to keep winning through the end of the tournament which wraps up on Aug. 10 if they want a shot at the Little League World Series.

“Every single team we’re playing is a really good team, is a state champion,” said parent Kimberly Holman. “This team is just really special they’ve got something that’s really clicking right now. We just really hope they stay with this momentum.”
