The Little League Southeastern Regional Tournament begins on Thursday in Warner Robins, and one Macon team is in the field.

The Western Little League All-Stars took home the Georgia state title last week to advance to this week's regional tournament. The girls are all from Macon and will make the short drive down I-75 for their meeting with the team from Florida on Thursday.

If the girls win the regional, then it's on to Portland, Oregon for the Little League Softball World Series. Manager Dewayne Phillips thinks his girls have what it takes, and knows what they have to do to be successful.

"Pitch, hit and play defense," said Phillips. "We can't make any errors, errors will kill you. One run can be the difference in the ball game, so let's just do the best that we can and keep all that other stuff out of your head. Try and keep your mind straight on what you're doing."

The All-Stars' first game is at 2 PM in Warner Robins.
