On June 23, the boys played a tournament in Griffin, Ga., and won the 8U USSSA State Championship Title. They then had their eyes set on winning the World Series. They arrived in New Orleans on Tuesday, July 9 to begin the weeklong World Series Tournament.
The tournament was originally planned to be a double elimination bracket with the championship game being on Sunday, July 14. However, due to Hurricane Barry, the association changed it to single elimination with the championship game being held on Friday, July 12.
The boys played through high winds, heavy rains, and immense temperatures which they are not accustomed to. On Friday evening they won the 8U USSSA World Series Title. Photo/Kimberly Jones.
