Pearland Little League wins their first game of the Little League World Series with 8-3 victory



WILLIAMSPORT, Pennsylvania – Pearland’s Little League team played its first game of the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania on Thursday night and advanced to Game 2.

The game started at 7 p.m. Houston time and ended just before 9:30 p.m. with the Pearland All-Stars leaving with an 8-3 victory.

The team played a Hollidaysburg, Pa. team, which is a town about two hours from Williamsport.

Team Manager Aaron Cummings told KPRC 2 he expected a large crowd – up to 10,000 people to fill Lamade Stadium for the Thursday night game.

“Don’t worry about all the cameras, and don’t worry about all the crowds, because these boys have never played for this many people, you know, and with cameras everywhere, so I’m just kind of, my ritual I guess, is just trying to get him in the right mind frame to be able to go out there and help his team,” said Melody Shelton, mother of Pearland pitcher Kaiden Shelton.

Even Pennsylvania residents who are at the Little League World Series are keeping a close eye on the Texas team.

“We always try to get the Mid-Atlantic Region, but I start watching regionals back when they first begin and then we watch and we pick out our favorites from all over the place,” said Joe Warner, who lives in Pennsylvania and tries to come to the watch part of the tournament every year. “Hollidaysburg is a pretty good team, they fought to get in it. Not quite the record that Texas has, but we’ll see what happens.”
