Local All Star Baseball Team Makes History Representing West Texas!
Baseball is America's favorite pastime. Some of the greatest players in the Major League's that ever graced the baseball diamond with their talent had to start somewhere. Everyone from Babe Ruth to Hank Aaron, Cal Ripken to Ken Griffey Jr. no doubt there was a little boy with a dream that began in each of his hometowns, where the skills were polished to perfection on a local, youth baseball team.
Today's youth are no different. I have 2 boys who each love and have played baseball their whole lives. Our jobs are to encourage and support that dream for these youngsters. What happens when we do? Big things! Including this incredibly, impressive accomplishment for one local youth baseball team.

The 10U Andrews Allstar team started its journey at the beginning of this summer with one goal in mind…to be the first team from Andrews to ever make it to the World Series!

After 6 total games in Mississippi, the Andrews Allstars came out as the clear winner, outscoring their opponents 65-21 overall, and are headed to the World Series in Vincennes, Indiana August 4 – 14 where they will represent not only their home town and the state of Texas, but the entire Southwest Region of the US!
