The Bay City Northwest Little League team defeated Beach Little League 8-2 in the Michigan Little League Baseball Championship Game on Wednesday in Mt. Pleasant.

With the victory, Bay City heads to the Great Lakes regional tournament in Indianapolis, Indiana early in August.  If they are victorious there, they will head to Williamsport, Pennsylvania for the Little League World Series later on in August.

It is Bay City's first state title in Little League baseball since 1952.
