Heading into Saturday, Jeff Overstreet proclaimed it a new day for his 6-year-old coach pitch All-Stars.
The coach's statement was right because after dropping two games on day one of the Dizzy Dean State Tournament, the Starkville Americans started day two with a 16-8 victory over Eupora.
"It was cool to see them respond, to want to win," Overstreet said. "We could have laid down (Saturday), but the kids pulled together and we hit the ball."
The all-stars of Eupora were first to strike as Landry Winters came around to give his team an early 1-0 advantage.
