Little League team from San Ramon to play in Game 1 of West Regionals on ESPN3

It's every young baseball player's dream to play in the Little League World Series and the 11-12-year-old all-stars from San Ramon's Canyon Creek Little Leauge are so close they can taste it.

Even the Oakland A's are cheering them on -- they put a scoreboard message up at the Coliseum.
