The Mariners are cool and all, but our baseball fandom is now focused on a few small stars.

In case you missed it, a team from Northeast Seattle representing all of Washington made it to the Little League World Series — the pinnacle tournament for young baseball players ages 10 to 12.

This is the first time in the Seattle league’s history that a team has made it this far. Here’s all you need to know to cheer ‘em on.

  • Their first World Series game is against New England this Thursday, Aug. 17, at noon. Watch on ESPN.
  • Team manager Christian Shewey is a dentist who was once drafted by the Mariners.
  • They’ve got some pop. In three qualifying games to get to the World Series, Northeast Seattle outscored their opponents 33-1.
  • If they make it all the way, mark your calendars for Sunday, Aug. 27 for the final game of the Series.
