July 20, 2021 - We are thrilled to share that the Shelbyville 8U All-Stars clenched the Texas Dixie Youth Baseball Division II State Championship this past Saturday in Longview, Texas after defeating Daingerfield in three games.
The boys will be representing the great State of Texas July 29, 2021 - August 3, 2021 at the World Series in Laurel, Mississippi. They are coached by Greg McDonald, Jacob Best, Jake Mathews and Ricky Lee.
This team of exceptional young men are all students at Shelbyville School. They have spent countless hours this summer practicing in preparation for the opportunity to represent Texas at the World Series, and they have impressed many with their focus, drive, and determination throughout the post-season.
Through District, Regional and State Tournament play, the Dragons have shown to be quite formidable, outscoring their opponents 210-40 to date.
This is the first team from Shelbyville to ever travel to the World Series and donor support is needed to help cover travel costs, uniforms and hotel stays. All proceeds go directly to the boy's expenses for the World Series.
If we are fortunate enough to raise additional funds exceeding what is needed for the World Series, that money will be donated back to Shelbyville Youth Sports for much needed field maintenance and complex updates.
Sponsors will be recognized on social media once they have committed to a donation. Additionally, a permanent sign for the Shelbyville Youth Sports Complex will be made recognizing their generosity.
If you are interested in supporting the team as they travel to the World Series, please call Raegan at (936)332-0052 for details.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
