HOUSTON – For three years, the Starkville American All-Stars have been among the best Dizzy Dean teams in the state of Mississippi.

The 8-year-olds won the state championships in their first year as a team as 6-year-olds, won it again last year as 7-year-olds and they’re going to get a chance to three-peat Monday night. There was no doubt left on the field on Sunday that the American All-Stars were the best in the South State tournament as they beat the Starkville National All-Stars in an All-Starkville championship game with a 21-5 victory in just four innings.
