The Miller County eight and under All Stars have had a great baseball season.

They competed at the district level on June 27, 2017 in Dawson. After defeating Terrell County 12 - 1 in the first game and 10 -1 in the second game, this gave the boys the district championship and a birth in the state tournament.

They will be competing at the state level July 11 - 13, 2017, in Madison, Georgia. They will play their first game on Tuesday, July 11 against Jasper County.

This team, along with the 10 and under boys, who also will play in the state tournament have been conducting various fund-raisers to assist in the expenses associated with travel and lodging.

Both teams and their supporters would like to express their deepest appreciation to all the businesses and individuals who have sponsored these All Star teams. The boys and coaches of these teams are to be congratulated, and we wish them much luck and many wins in their attempt to bring the state trophy back to our home county of Miller.
