Congratulations to the Minnesota Little League team from Coon Rapids-Andover! The Minnesota Little League baseball team played Kentucky this afternoon in the opening of the Little League World Series. Minnesota clinched the win 2-1 and will be advancing in the World Series!

Bring Me the News says that "the team from Coon Rapids-Andover is the second team representing the Midwest Region to win their opener since 2001." They won on just two hits: one that was an RBI triple and then one on a wild pitch.

The team will advance to the next game which is on Sunday. They'll be playing a team from Virginia. We do not know the time of the game yet. You can take a look at the Little League World Series bracket HERE!


Hang out with Carly Ross on The Mighty 920 KDHL weekdays 1-5pm!
