The title puts Myers Park into the Southeast Regional, August 2-5 at Fireman's Field in Loudoun County, Northern Virginia.   Myers Park’s first game will be Thursday, August 2nd at 11am against San Jose FL, a team out of the Jacksonville area.   MP fans can follow the team's progress on the MPTLL Twitter page.

The Southeast Regional will match up 12 teams from Alabama, the Bahamas, North Florida, South Florida, Georgia, Eastern North Carolina, Western North Carolina, South Carolina, Eastern Tennessee, Western Tennessee and Virginia. The winner will advance to the 14U Babe Ruth World Series in Murray, Utah in mid-August.
