With a single swing of a bat in the bottom of the sixth inning, the team from Michigan defeated the Hamilton West Side All-Stars to move onto Saturday's Little League Great Lakes Regional Tournament final in Indianapolis.
Trailing 4-2, Tommy Maxey stepped up to the plate with two on and hit a three-run home run to clinch the victory, according to WJBK-TV. The win propels the team into the championship game Saturday against the winner of the Jackie Robinson West vs. Burlington game.
"They don't quit. They believe in themselves," said Tom Mazzola, manager of the Grosse Pointe Woods-Shores Little League team. "They know they can compete with anyone."
