Danville, VA - Some little league all stars got a big send off to the state championships Wednesday in Danville.
The team was greeted with cheers and congratulations from the employees of the Danville Regional Medical Center.
The All-Stars are Virginia's 2012 District 2 champions and will play their first state championship game this Friday in Portsmouth.
The team is glad to have the staff of DRMC rooting for them and they hope the rest of Danville will do the same.
"I'm very gracious for them, to be able to do this for us. Have a send off and then do even more if we make it," said Cliff Helton, first base.
The event was even catered by the hospital cooking staff that provided plenty of hotdogs and hamburgers for the kids.
