The big day is finally here for the Pearland Little League All Stars. In a few hours, they will play in their first game at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. We were there yesterday as the players took part in their final practice. At 2pm today, they will take the field against a team from Plymouth, Minnesota. The boys say they know they have to be focused in order to succeed.

"(We) have to play hard and forget about everything else and just play like we've been playing," said Pearland All-Star player Chris Leger.

"We got to fight hard, forget about all the cameras, all the fans and just focus on what's gonna happen between the lines," said Pearland All-Star player Jorge Gutierrez.
