A team of Indiana Little Leaguers is one win away from the World Series.

The New Albany Little League team plays Chicago's Jackie Robinson West Saturday for the Great Lakes Region championship and a trip to Williamsport, Pa. New Albany beat a Wisconsin team 14-4 to reach the championship game.

"They're really teaching us how to do it with class and how to do it with pride," New Albany Little League President Mark Boone told WAVE-TV in Louisville.

No New Albany team has ever reached the Little League World Series.

"It's every kid, it's every parent and it's every coach," assistant coach Kevin Ricketts said. "It's everybody's dream to get to Williamsport."

Saturday's game is at 2 p.m. at the Ruben F. Glick Little League Baseball Center at 9802 E. Little League Drive in Indianapolis. It will also be televised nationally on ESPN.
