Fundraiser held for Eastlake Little League All Stars

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - They're our hometown heroes and the pride of Chula Vista. The Eastlake Little League All Stars are at the Little League World Series in Pennsylvania.

But being away from home is getting expensive. So supporters here in San Diego held a fundraiser Saturday to help offset costs.

Little league players from all over San Diego came to Chula Vista to pitch in money and play for raffle prizes.

The Eastlake Little League All Stars have been on the road, staying in hotels for more than a month.

"These boys just keep winning and keep winning which meant mom and dad's wallet had to keep opening and keep opening," said fundraiser coordinator Shane Stroberg. "The cost we have out there is looking like 6 to 7 thousand dollars a family get them out there for this world series run."

The Eastlake little leaguers won their first game Friday in the Little League World Series. Their next game is Sunday at 2 p.m. PST.
