Playing in the World Series is a dream for any baseball player. For 13 kids from Kempsville, that dream may soon become a reality.

The Kempsville Blue Colt all-star team is three wins away to playing in the International World Series held in Marion, Illinois this year.

The team consists of 15 and 16-year-olds and the four team double elimination tournament begins Wednesday night.

The four teams are Greenboro, N.C., a team from the Bronx, NY and a team from Beaver County Pennsylvania.

The championship game is Saturday and the winner will be crowned the East Region Champion.

News 3 met with the team before they played their first game against Greensboro and you can hear from them in the video player above.
