Count the Atlanta Braves in as fans of Northwood Little League.

The Braves sent a video to the Northwood players and coaches with congratulatory messages from Cameron Maybin, A.J. Pierzynski, Jace Peterson, Ryan Lavarnway, Michael Bourne, Andrelton Simmons and Nick Swisher.

The Braves also included a letter from the club, and a flag with signatures of the Braves players was being sent to South Carolina to show their support for the Northwood team “in Braves Country.”

Northwood won the Southeast Regional championship Thursday with a 7-0 win over Virginia, becoming the first team from South Carolina to earn a berth in the Little League Baseball World Series in 65 years.

Northwood will begin play in the LLWS against the New England champion, Cranston Western (R.I.) Little League, at 4 p.m. Friday at Lamade Stadium in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
