ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

You can help the Dizzy Dean Albany 10-year-old All-Star Team go to the world baseball championship by eating at one of Albany's locally owned restaurants.

Austin's Fire Grill and Oyster Bar is donating 10-percent of Wednesday's revenue to help pay for the trip.

The players won the state championship in Valdosta earlier this year.

The donation will help them pay for the 4 to 7 day stay in Mississippi for the tournament.

"It's very expensive. I mean it's a minimum of $10,000 a trip. We've raised significant funds. We're a little short. Any support we can get whether it's a monetary donation or just coming out to eat with us," said Austin Newman, owner.

You can also buy a $10 raffle ticket for a chance to a Yeti Cooler, $250 Austin's gift card or a kayak trip for four. 

The fundraiser lasts all day until they close.
