baseball team Fayette County has ever had – a team of 11 and 12-year-olds from La Grange, Fayetteville and Round Top- Carmine that rattled off 13 consecutive playoff victories to win not only the state title but came within one win of going to the
World Series themselves, losing 1-0 to Jackson, Tennessee in the title game of the Southern Regional Tournament in Florida.
