PEARLAND, Texas - The Pearland Little League All-Stars baseball team is hosting a fundraiser Friday night on the eve of their trip to the Little League World Series.

The team leaves Saturday morning for Williamsport, Pennsylvania, as the Southwest Regional champion.

After an undefeated 5-0 pool play effort, Pearland went on to win the championship game against Louisiana, 7-3. The team set two Southwest Regional records during their trip to the series: most runs scored in first inning with 18 and most runs scored in a game with 28.

Friday's fundraising event runs from 6pm to 8pm at The Rig in Pearland to raise money for travel expenses.

Local 2 will keep following the Pearland All-Stars as they move on to the Little League World Series.
