Knox County will represent Kentucky against Indiana on Saturday night in the Great Lakes Regional Little League Tournament. The 12-year-old All-Stars from Barbourville will take on the Hoosier Little Leaguers at 7 pm in Indianapolis and you can watch it online at ESPN3. The boys from Knox County recently captured their second straight State Championship after finishing as State Runner-Up as nine and ten-year-olds in 2011. The pool play games will continue through Tuesday. The semi-final and final games will be televised on ESPN and ESPN2.
Since the team comes from a small town, they do not have access to sponsorship from larger corporations. The team is accepting donations to help support the boys’ traveling expenses to Indy and back. Any donations can be made out to Knox County Little League. They should be mailed to: Charles Tye, 1551 Charcoal Lane, Barbourville, KY 40906.
On behalf of KSR and the Big Blue Nation, best of luck goes out to the Knox County Little Leaguers! Show your support for the small-town, Eastern Kentucky mountain boys by making a donation, watching, or by leaving words of encouragement in the comments section below!
