Proud grandparents watching grandson in College World Series

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

Inside their Longview home, Norwood and Sarah Eaton are some proud baseball grandparents.

"It has been a dream come true," said Norwood. "We have followed them since tee-ball."

The Eaton's have seen three of their grandson's go on to play college baseball.

"Really, it has been a blessing for us, to see these little guys grow up through the baseball programs," said Norwood. "It is really something that has been a blessing for us and given us something to look forward too."

Monday night was must see TV in the Eaton household.

Their grandson, former Tyler Lee Red Raider Brett Pirtle, stands just two wins from a national championship, as Mississippi State plays in the College World Series.

"It has been tremendous as it is, up until this point," said Norwood. "Win lose or draw, it has been a blessing for them and us, and I just hope they win these last two games."

"I text him all the time and say 'good luck'," said Sarah, "He always responds the same, 'Thank you, I love you."

The Eaton's say they aren't shy about telling people about their grandson's success.

Imagine what they will say if he can win a national title.

The Bulldogs play UCLA in a best of three series for the CWS title.

"Now he has made the big time and it is so satisfying to see his hard word pay off," said Norwood. "It would be so great to be up there [Omaha], but I can't see the TV replays up there."

Replays, of what they hope, is a national championship for their baseball family.

"We expect him to win," said Norwood, "I hope so, it would be a dream come true."
