Baseball season is in full swing in Starkville.
After a successful regular season, the 10-year-old All-Stars are busy playing and preparing for this weekendâ€™s Dizzy Dean State Tournament in Eupora.
â€śWe have been practicing and playing tournaments and having an overall good time,â€ť Starkville coach T.J. Kent said. â€śWe open our state tournament (today)Â at 1:30Â playing Grenada.â€ť
Heading into the season culminating tournament, Kent feels pretty good about where his team stands. Not only are they strong on the field, but off the field, the coach says he could not ask for a better squad.
â€śThis is the best group of kids I have coached or been around,â€ť Kent said. â€śThey are good kids and good athletes. We have good strengths all the way around the field from batting to defense. Now it is all about getting their minds set on playing ball while also having fun.â€ť
