Governor John Bel Edwards welcomed this year’s Little League champions, the East Bank All Stars, to the Governors Mansion Sunday.
The Eastbank Little League defeated Curacao 8-0 in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
The team from River Ridge, a suburb of New Orleans, is also the first team from Louisiana to win the title.
With representatives from Popeyes at the Governor’s side, the champions were treated to the “ONLY Popeye’s Spicy Chicken Sandwiches in the world!” Edwards said.
“These young men make us #LouisianaProud.”
