Nashville Little League team heading to World Series

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

One year after the Goodlettsville All-Stars captured the hearts of Middle Tennessee with an inspiring run to the Little League World Series championship game, another local team is on its way to Williamsport.

The South Nashville All-Stars defeated Henrico, VA, 5-3 Friday evening in the southeast region final in Georgia.

Earlier this week, the Tennessee state champs defeated Stuart, FL, 5-1 in the semifinals, and at the watch party at Brentwood's Cross Corner Grill, it was a sea of red as proud moms, dads, siblings and friends watched while on the edges of their seats.

Congratulations are also in order once again for the Goodlettsville All Stars, who won their regional tournament Tuesday. They next head to Michigan to play in the Junior Little League World Series.

The Goodlettsville All Stars won the United States championship at the 2012 Little League World Series in Williamsport, before coming up just short to Japan in the World Series championship game.
