Making it to the World Series is no easy feat, but Selma’s 15U all-star team has done it in back-to-back years.

It’s an accomplishment we should all be mighty proud of them for. After all, they are not just representing Selma, they are representing the state of Alabama.

Last year’s trip did not end quite the way the team wanted it to. There was no big celebration with the trophy raised high, but this year is different. The team is hoping to change that and redeem themselves.

Winning won’t be easy, but this team has shown a fire and hunger to win after going through the state tournament undefeated. We hope your dreams of winning the World Series comes true.

It would truly be an amazing feat. Win or lose, this community should be proud. Swing hard, run fast and play ball the way you have played it this entire all-star season. Here’s to Selma’s 15U all-star team.
