North Chilton 6U wins first tournament together

Anytime a team steps out on the field together for the first time there is a certain degree of uncertainty.

That was case for the North Chilton 6U All-stars baseball team, who quickly answered any uncertainty there might have been by winning the Shelby County Dizzy Dean Invitational on June 2.

Being just 6 years old and under it was the first time that many of the players experienced playing in a tournament atmosphere.

However, they handled it with flying colors and defeated Chelsea 25-17 in comeback fashion to take home the championship honors.

The title game was the second time North Chilton faced Chelsea in as many days, losing 20-18 a day earlier.

North Chilton was able to learn from the loss and flipped the script when it mattered most with a title on the line.

North Chilton averaged 22.5 runs per game and won three of the four contests the team competed in.

Other wins included 22-5 over Calera and 25-6 against Shelby County to secure a spot in the championship.

The team consists of players from Jemison, Thorsby and Maplesville.
