Danville American All-Stars - ABC 13 Team of the Week
Today's Team of the Week is the Danville American 11-and-12-year-old Little League team. Danville rallied from a 10-6 deficit Tuesday night to edge Lynchburg Jefferson 11-10 in Lynchburg to win the District Two championship and automatic berth to the Little League State Tournament. Blake Fulcher struck out the final hitter in the sixth to secure the win as Danville American wins a tight game and now moves on to the state tourney in Portsmouth.
Nicholas Jones, DANVILLE PITCHER/SHORTSTOP, said "In the first inning, we scored as many runs as we did last night. I mean we scored more than last night."
Blake Fulcher, DANVILLE THIRD BASEMAN/PITCHER, said "And we played together and just, we picked each other up if like we made a bad play. We picked each other up and just kept on going."
