(Hagerstown, IN)--Excitement was building Thursday morning to a fever pitch with the first pitch in Hagerstown’s quest for a Little League World Series Championship just hours away. On Wednesday, Wayne County Commissions proclaimed it Hagerstown Little League All Star Day. Banners featuring individual players have gone up along Main Street. And, the team got this message from former Reds and current Tigers catcher Tucker Barnhart. "Enjoy representing the town of Hagerstown and the state of Indiana and just know that the entire state is behind you. Good luck, guys," Barnhart said. First pitch is at 3 Thursday afternoon on ESPN. Hagerstown will be referred to as Great Lakes and will wear orange and blue.
