Little Leaguers qualify for national championship

The Bonnie Robins Little League team just won a regional tournament and has a shot at the national championship in Missouri next month.



The regional win qualifies the team for the championship on Aug. 18, but the trip would cost the team almost $15,000 to go.



Team manager Jose Castro says the players, many coming from tough backgrounds, deserve all the help they can get. Castro says the kids dedicate themselves to the team and each other.



"I am asking the public if at all possible to have some sort of donation and help us with whatever they can," he says.
