Age will not be an issue for coach Jeff Overstreet and the Starkville American All-Stars.
Even though American is an all 6-year-old team playing against 7-year-old squads at the Dizzy Dean South State Tournament this weekend, Overstreet said his players are showing they have what it takes to have success.
"They have more passion than any 6-year-olds we've seen," Overstreet said. "We have a lot of guys who love the game of baseball. We've got a great group of parents and we want to win. That's the key."
Starkville American plays its first game of the state tournament against Mathiston today at 2:30 p.m. The action takes place at McKee Park.
