COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Clay Duncan works as a realtor, which means he couldn't leave with the Northern Little Leaguers.  His job with the team is Vice President.  Duncan says words can't describe the impact a full crowd of fans has on the game.

He says it encourages the players and makes them perform better.

Parents have been booking their plane tickets, rental cars, and hotel rooms. "Most of the families are gonna fly there's probably a couple families that will drive, you know it could be a 10 day tournament. So they're gonna be up there for a good while if we continue to win." Says Duncan

And when the team keeps winning in Williamsport the fans for Northern keep growing and flying, Duncan says, "We'll have families that'll go up there spur of the moment, if we're winning and end up in the American finals game we'll play someone internationally and we'll have even more go up then."

The only problem for parents and fans is where to stay. "'The hotel, the lodging they have to check in up there they have to pay for 10 days. They don't have stay for 10 days but have to pay for 10 days." Said Duncan.
