Age 8 is great

My ace Shreveport Little League correspondent, Frederick "Slap" Maxwell, shot me this info and since the July Fourth week is traditionally a Little League All-Star tournaments week, I will post the news here. This is a fine looking group of boys and, as you will see from the numbers below, no machine in either Bossier or Shreveport or the surrounding environs was able to contain them as they ran roughshod to the title. Hope at the state tournament they get dirty and have fun.

The Southeast Shreveport Blue All Stars outscored four opponents 50-2 to win the District 4 Little League Baseball Championship. The team, which plays in the 7/8 Machine Pitch Division will represent the district at the State Tournament in Lake Charles, July 20 – July 26. Pictured from left, front row: Colton Moore, Landon Guerrero, Michael Schmidt, Hunter Self, Kayne Lynn. Second row: Hunter Beatty, Christian Gulledge, Hunter Gaston, Brewer Hendrix, Cameron Parikh, Steele Neterville. Back row: Lance Beatty, Kevin Netterville, Chad Gulledge, Kevin Guerrero.
