Competition is over and the Starkville Americans All-Stars have returned home.
After claiming the 8-year-old Dizzy Dean South State Championship a couple weeks back, the team has spent the last few days in Southaven as participants in the World Series.
â€śIt was a great experience for the coaches and the kids,â€ť Starkville American coach Charlie Williamson said. â€śOur main goal going in was to win the State championship. We reached that goal. We wanted the kids to experience the World Series and they had a blast up there playing baseball.â€ť
In order to reach the World Series, the Americans posted a perfect 5-0 record throughout the South State Tournament. The team then proceeded to go 3-3 in Southaven so for its All-Star careers, Starkville was 8-3, a record that Williamson says â€śyou canâ€™t really complain about.â€ť
