The Little League World Champions from River Ridge, La., met with Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards on Sunday after their victory, where they were rewarded with the fast-food chain’s renowned chicken sandwiches.
In a tweet, the governor showed off a video of platters of the chicken sandwiches being served.
“The only place in the world that you can get a @PopeyesChicken sandwich is at the Governor’s Mansion tonight. Only the best for Louisiana’s own 2019 @LittleLeague World Series Champions!” the tweet read.
The Little League team brought home the first world championship title for the state last month after beating Curacao 8-0, WBNS reports.
