12u Wicksburg Softball Team Leaves for World Series

The 12u Wicksburg softball team is chasing the dream of winning a world series in the Youth Dixie Tournament and today a sendoff for the team as they depart for Louisiana.

The girls are riding in style, as the team made the 8 hour trip to Alexandria, proudly representing the Wiregrass and letting everyone know they are Team Alabama.

The team is living through the hashtag "in it to win it". the players and coaching staff excited to hit the diamond as the action starts on Saturday.

The only difference for the squad is they normally play on a dirt in field, the World Series will have a grass infield, but they've been preparing by practicing on Wicksburg's Haseball field.

Head Coach Zane Kelley confident in his squad and the players well aware how of much work they needed to put in to reach this point.
