Baconton All-Star team braces for tough challenges ahead

Posted: Updated:

Earlier in the week we told about the Lee County All-Star softball team heading to Louisiana to represent Georgia in the World Series but they aren't the only Georgia team that will be in the Bayou.  The 18 and under Baconton All-Star softball team will also be representing the Peach State this weekend.

The team made it as the only 18 and under all-star team in Georgia but head coach Jeff Childress says his team has plenty of experience and have been preparing for a couple of weeks

Jeff Childress "We spent last week at softball camp as a high school team so they got to play some really good teams last week. They are used to the batter and fast pitchers and have a good feeling. They worked a long time to get here to represent the state of Georgia."

First game of the World Series will be Saturday in Alexandria, Louisiana.
