Congratulations to McBrayer Member Jon Woodall and all the team members and parents of Lexington's Eastern Little League. Mr. Woodall currently serves as President of the league. Eastern’s 11/12 year old All-Stars were State Champions and Great Lakes Regional Tournament qualifiers! Over 3000 teams competed for a trip to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Eastern was one of 32 teams remaining before being eliminated by eventual Regional Champion and Little League World Series qualifier Grosse Point, Michigan.
Eastern is based at Ecton and Merrick Parks in the Chevy Chase and Lansdowne Merrick neighborhoods. With support from local businesses and friends (including McBrayer), Eastern Little League turns no family away due to the inability to pay registration fees or purchase equipment.
