The Leeds Little League 12U “Green Machine” team came in second in the Dizzy Dean state competition tonight against the Walker County Miners.
The Leeds team won state last year. The second-place ranking is enough to qualify the team to play in the Little League World Series later this month. It will be their fourth trip to the World Series.
The players are Grayson Ford, Will Thomas, Casey Williams, Brooks Ford, Ty Bedell, Conner Nelson, Tabari Davis, Hudson Hollis, Cal Thomas, Gavin Howard, Nash Jones and Sam Lollar.
