The ABBA ( Atlanta Boys Baseball Association ) has always been successful in the Dixie postseason with All Stars from District Championships, State Championships and berths to Dixie World Series. The fans of the ABBA always count on our All Stars to be successful in the postseason. And this year was no different.
Today the season ended for the ABBA, the last team left was the Atlanta All Stars 12U O Zone North Regional State Champions, who took on the West Rusk All Stars 12U O Zone South Regional State Champions in a winner take all State Championship Series at Lear Park in Longview. The winner would gain a berth to the 12U World Series in Oxford, Mississippi starting August 5th.
Atlanta 12U All Stars came up short at state but their season was great
The Atlanta 12U All Stars came up short this weekend in a best 2 out 3 series, losing 3-1 Friday night and 9-2 Saturday, but like all ABBA All Star teams, they displayed the “no quit” mindset.
