Dallas County All-Stars remain unbeaten in World Series

The Dallas County 11-12-year-old All-Star Baseball team are unbeaten in the Dixie Youth World Series.

The All-Star squad enters Tuesday’s contest against South Carolina with a 3-0 record.

The Dallas County squad beat Laurel-Jones County 12-0 and Mississippi 15-3 and knocked off Tennessee 7-4.

A win over South Carolina puts the Dallas County team into the championship game on Thursday.

“What this group of young men are doing is impressive,” Dallas County Probate Judge Jimmy Nunn said. “We almost did not have a season and we would’ve missed out on what they’re doing.”

The All-Stars became the first 11-12-year-old team to win a state championship from Dallas County. The All-Stars went 4-1 and advanced to the World Series.

Omari Smith, Qmarion Pernell, Venetris Eaton, Rhett Thomas, Alexander Johnson, Jack Cobb, Travis Jones, Thomas Clay Atchison, Taylon Sigler, Clifton Smith, Ryall King and Wallis Gilmore are the players.

Lyn Britt is the manager, Tommy Atchison and Kay Jones are the coaches.
