Loudoun South will be competing in the Little League World Series Wednesday in Williamsport.
Let's take a look at the two former Orioles that once took part in the iconic tournament.
Jonathan Schoop, 2B
The former Orioles' star starred for Curacao's 2004 LLWS championship team. Schoop handled the pressure in his youth and is a model for kids today on what can be achieved with hard work. He delivered the go-ahead RBI in International play that sent Curacao to Williamsport, Pa., then earned a save in the final game against the U.S. team from California by recording the final two outs.
Boog Powell, 1B
Before he started his famous barbecue on Eutaw Street, Powell starred as a pitcher for the 1954 LLWS team from Florida. The team from New York that ultimately defeated Powell's squad featured former major leaguer, Jim Barbieri. Ironically Barbieri appeared as a pinch-hitter for the Dodgers in the 1966 World Series against Powell and the Baltimore Orioles.
