The 11- and 12-year-old baseball boys from the Seminole Recreation Department played the first round of state in Roberta, Georgia last weekend and advanced to the second round of the Dixie Youth State Baseball Championship this weekend.
The 11- and 12-year-old Indians, in defeating Crawford County 3-1, played great as a team with very few defensive errors. Luke Scott and Preston Deal pitched a good game.
They lost to a strong Wrens team, 3-9, and beat Taylor County 5-0 with Colt Williams pitching 87 pitches and 5 2/3 innings. Great team defensive playing stranded several Taylor County players on base to get a shut out.
Members of the team include, front row, Preston Deal, Jack Palmer, Rylan Cook, Reed Phillips, Brody Rogerson, Luke Scott; back row, Coach Jim Palmer, Coach Brad Akers, Ellis Denham, Colt Williams, Andrew Rogers, Cullen Hicks, Luke Akers, and Coach Stephen Scott.
