They gave it their all! We're talking about our very own Universal Little league All Stars from Corpus Christi.
All eyes were on the Little League World Series Saturday afternoon. You could say just about everyone in town was watching and supporting the boys in the world series. Several watch parties were hosted all across town. We sent reporter Anayeli Ruiz to see how lots of you were supporting our home town team.
Bars and restaurants had a packed house with people coming from all over to watch the big game on the big screen.
We checked out Dazzling Events on Ayers as well as Buffalo Wild Wings on SPID Near Greenwood where we found lots of fans sitting on the edge of their seats and cheering on the boys. Fan Adrian Arriola said, "Everybody is coming by and saying how excited they are to see them on TV!" Jay Lopez, another fan said, "we are really excited and everybody is just stuck on the televisions in every room. Everyone is just so energized."
The game was watched by everyone right here on TV-3 as the boys represented not just Corpus Christi but the entire state of Texas. One local group of little league players had a game of their own and they couldn't wait to finish so they could watch their friends play in the world series on television. Little League Fan Randy Garcia said, "It's awesome! It's Corpus Christi! Not a lot of people get to go to the world series. Despite the loss, local fans say the kids are still winners in that they made it as far as they have.
