Grandview All-Star team takes east side pride to Little League World Series Grandview Little League: Meet the Iowa team headed to. Grosse Pointe Woods-Shores is representing the Great Lakes regional for the Little League World Series. The team opens play on Friday. Meet the Teams: Hazleton Little League – Hazleton, Pa. For more than 25 years, the Hazleton Little League Challenger Division has been.

But baseball is not his only love—he also plays basketball and bowls in a bowling league that his dad got him into. In his spare time, Levi, like many of his other teammates, likes to play Fortnite and watch YouTube videos. We pass it around and each one of us touches it. Playing second base and pitching, Nater said he feels pretty confident about taking the regionals and getting to the world series.

At 5 foot, 3 inches tall and pounds, Nathan wears number 2 on the Keystone team. He started playing baseball at age 6 and has continued every year since. He also enjoys soccer and basketball, but baseball is his favorite sport. And how did this team get so good? He said he can eat tacos for every meal. I hope you are all proud of us. Thank you for your support.

His home also includes a sister, Carrah, a dog, Cyd and two cats, Charlie and Ca-chow. He stands 5 feet 1 inch at pounds and will be in eighth grade at Central Mountain Middle School. He said his favorite school subject is math. He says lots of practice and playing lots of games makes the team better. He plays second and third base. Although he enjoys playing basketball, too, he said he likes baseball the most. Rubbing that Keystone baseball before each game and catching Mookey are traditions Cayden enjoys prior to the team taking the field at the beginning of each game.

Yep, you got it. He likes to play Fortnite. But no tacos for this guy. While Gardner received accolades for his defensive plays during states, off the field he likes to relax and have fun.

He also likes to hunt. The team rubs it for good luck before every game, since former Keystone Assistant Coach Justin Kline said it is a lucky charm. As the All-Stars prepare for their first game of the Mid-Atlantic Championships next week, Gardner said he is mostly excited but a little nervous in the pit of his stomach. Gabe, 13, is one of four children in his family. He has an older brother, Peyton, a little brother, Patrick, and a twin sister, Hannah.

Gabe was pretty matter-of-fact about his role as pitcher, saying he feels pretty good about the game when he throws three-pitch strikeouts, one after another. The pitcher is a lover of playing Fortnite, gym class, watching Pittsburgh Steelers and Ohio State football games and eating fried chicken.

For now, he said, he will continue to practice and have lots of focus so that the team can advance to the World Series. At 5 foot, 8 inches and pounds, Elek Fravel is a big boy ready for the biggest games of his young life. Wearing number 12, he has hit two home runs — one in districts and one in states — in the playoffs, and is hoping to connect in a big way at the regionals, too. The year-old is the son of Josh and Nikki Fravel of Blanchard. His family includes a brother, Kai; a sister, Aspen; and a cat… coincidentally named Kitty.

A seventh grader at Central Mountain Middle School in the fall, he says his favorite subject is math, then adds with a smile — lunch. Elek started playing baseball when he was 4 or 5 in the T-ball division and has continued up through the age groups. And yes, he likes playing Fortnite, too. His favorite major league team is the Pittsburgh Pirates and the best player in his eyes is David Ortiz, formerly of the Boston Red Sox.

Some people are nervous… mostly our parents. All this attention… sometimes it can be a little overwhelming, but it feels real good to know people are proud of us and supporting us.

Going into seventh grade at Central Mountain High School this year, he laughed after saying his favorite subjects are gym and lunch. He said plenty of practice and playing a lot of games is the only way to get as good at the sport as he and his team are.

The most exciting moment so far was when the team won the state championship and they all jumped on each other. As traditions go, Wyatt says the team all touches their mascot, a stuffed moose, and yells good luck. And well, he should. The Keystone kids have had a remarkable journey this year. And Gavin has been a big part of it. This position is supported by the Registrar and some duties may be split among the two positions as appropriate.
