HOUSTON -- Pearland's little league team players took part in the Grand Slam Parade Thursday with more than 40,000 people cheering along the parade route.

The team has already had plenty of excitement and the World Series hasn't even started.

Since they landed in Williamsport, Pennsylvania the boys have had uniform fittings, photo sessions, meetings with ESPN along with baseball practice.

Some of the parents said even though the game has started, it's already been a great ride.

They got here, everybody's taking care of them, they went down and [saw] the field, and his words were, 'Dad this is baseball heaven,' Scotti Toler said.
