Watch Parties Throughout Town for Universal Little League Fans
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
It was an exciting afternoon as many people around the Coastal Bend tuned in to watch the Universal Little League All-Stars play in the first game of the Little League World Series.
It turned into a close game, but in the end, the Universal Little League team came up short against a determined team from Washington State.
There were several big viewing parties going on all over the city, all of them well attended -- not only by little league fans and friends of the players, but by people who were just proud that a Corpus Christi team made it so far.
At Buffalo Wings and Rings on Saratoga, everyone there was supporting the Universal Little Leaguers, even if it wasn't the main reason they stopped by. Several people were simply proud that a Corpus Christi team gained so much deserved national recognition.
At Dazzling Events on Ayers, there was another watching party, where Universal Little League President Moses Leyba was cheering on his home team.
There were several other parties being held across the city, and there are expected to be even more for the next game. Despite Thursday's loss, everyone was positive and glad that the team has made it this far.
