Goodlettsville All-Stars preparing for another World Series run

GOODLETTSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Goodlettsville All-Stars, a team chosen from the very best of the Goodlettsville Little League, are hoping to make it back to the World Series.

The team has already won their district and state championships but has to beat Alabama on Friday in order to advance.

“They got a big kid that throws fast, but when you get to this point of the tournament, you expect to see a lot of great teams,” said manager Chris Hood.

"They look pretty good but feel like we can beat them,” said 13-year-old third baseman Tyler Nix.

The team met for a practice Wednesday morning.

“Mostly our infield game, a pregame stuff, and hitting,” Nix said.

The game is scheduled for 9 a.m. CT on Friday in Georgia. It may be on ESPN or ESPN 3, depending on how the day goes. If they win that, then it's on to Pennsylvania for the Little League World Series.

“It’ll be awesome to be on TV and playing all these other countries and stuff. It’ll be real fun,” Nix said.

The team has a GoFundMe account to raise money for their expenses. Click here for more information.
