ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – A 10U baseball team from Julington Creek won the Southeast Regional Championship title and will now advance to the Cal Ripken 10U World Series in Vincennes, Indiana in August.
The Julington Creek Diamond Kings 10U Elite team said that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and it is the first time a Julington Creek team has made it this far in their league.
The local team now needs your help and is raising money for their trip. The team is hoping to raise $12,000. From plane tickets for the players and their families to food and lodging -- the cost is going to climb and there is little time to act.

Chris Thompson, the coach of the winning team, said they only had eight days to prepare and raise money.
Good luck, boys!
