The Starkville 10-year-old All-Stars knew that the Dizzy Dean World Series was going to be competitive.
It also became an educational experience.
During their time in Southaven, Starkville's 10-year-old All-Stars were able to play against the team from Hilo, Hawaii.
Starkville defeated Hawaii 11-6 on the way to winning the consolation championship of the World Series, but Starkville assistant coach Stuart Davis said the team took much more away from it than a win.
"It was great to see a different culture," Davis said. "The way the brackets broke down we were really blessed to be able to play a team from Hawaii. You have teams from all over the Southeast, but when we heard Hawaii was there, that's all the kids wanted to talk about before we actually went up to the World Series."
