Nacogdoches All Stars Going for the Three-peat
What the young men who make up the Nacogdoches 10U Dixie League All Stars have accomplished over the past 3 seasons is amazing...what they hope to achieve over the next two weeks would be historic and unprecedented.
2 years ago, these guys played in the 8 and under division and they ended up bringing home the World Series Championship. Last year, in the 9 and under division, they did it again, bringing East Texas another World Series Banner. Now, the Texas State Champs will be traveling to Laurel, Mississippi to go for the 3-peat. If they win it all again, they would be the first team in all of Dixie League history to win back to back to back championships.
In fact, Nacogdoches will be well-represented in Laurel for the next week and a half as the Nacogdoches 12 and under team will also be playing for the World Series title.
We had the pleasure of featuring some of the All-Stars on the Merrell in the Morning Show, plus we decided to put their hitting ability on display in our front yard. Ping pong balls and a miniature bat is the best we could provide, but they stilled showed their great form and power, although, we could have used some pine tar on the bat. (no windows nor vehicles were harmed in the making of this video)
Congratulations to these outstanding young men and know that all of East Texas and the Lone Star State will be pulling for you while you're in Mississippi.
