Dozens gathered at J. Gray's Tavern in Cumberland on Friday night to watch the Cumberland American Little League team play its opening game at the Little League World Series.
The food was hot and the drinks were plentiful as customers watched the game on TV from the comfort of a bar stool or table.
"I'm just so proud of all of them. They are just pulling together. It's amazing that they've made it this far," said Cumberland resident Lori Beaudoin.
"Being a lifelong Cumberland resident it's great to see these guys again," another Cumberland patron said.
