A Louisiana team won the Little League World Series Sunday.
The Eastbank Little League defeated Curacao 8-0 in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The team from River Ridge, a suburb of New Orleans, is also the first team from Louisiana to win the title.
“Playing the game the right way. Having a blast doing it. Repping Louisiana. Claiming the @LittleLeague. We are so proud of @EastBankLL and all of their accomplishments this summer!” Tulane University tweeted.
The team is comprised of 12-year-old boys. It’s the second year in a row that an American team has won the series.
