NEWTOWN, CT (WTIC/CNN) - Some good news for Newtown, CT.

Eight months after the deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, one of its youth baseball teams is headed to the Cal Ripken League World Series.

The Newtown Renegades roster is made up of 10-year-olds.

Some of them were students at Sandy Hook.

The Renegades won the New England Regional this past weekend.

They'll start in the World Series tournament on Saturday.

The Cal Ripken League is similar to little league baseball.
