Hartselle 6U All-Stars set sights on World Series

The Hartselle 6U All-Star team is playing in the USSSA World Series in Gulf Shores this week.

The girls will be looking to bring back to Hartselle the first World Series Championship since 2014. The team that brought home the championship in 2014 was also a 6U team.

The 2019 girls are looking to complete the All-Star season by winning all five tournaments they play in. They have a 17-2 record through their first four tournaments.

Their coaches said Hartselle can be proud of these girls no matter the outcome in Gulf Shores this week. They have shown tremendous sportsmanship through the season and a tremendous amount of resiliency as they brought home the state championship. After falling into the loser’s bracket, they won three straight games, endured three rain delays that lasted several hours and had to change parks to finish the championship game.

Aurora said, “It’s the best, and I am excited.” Her mother added, “Seeing her on the field and all her hard work paying off makes me so very proud.”  

Finley said, “It’s another chance to win diamond rings and become famous.” Her mother added, “It’s great to see our girls get rewarded for all of their hard work and to see them have more time to bond with their teammates.” 

For Scarlett, “playing in the World Series means all those practices paid off!” For her mother, “‘Proud’ is an understatement.  Watching Scarlett be a part of a team brings an overwhelming sense of pride.”  

Bella said she is most excited to “play with my friends and do something I can remember forever.” Her mother said Bella “has grown so much over the past few years in softball. I’ve never seen a kid so determined and pour her heart out for a sport.” 

Haley said, “It means so much to me! I love softball!” Her mother added, “It makes me so proud to see my daughter out on the field working so hard at a game she loves! We are so proud of her!”  

Josie said she is excited for the World series because “well … it’s fun! You have to practice a lot, a lot, a lot and a lot. We are going to out there and show them what we have practiced!” Her mom added, “Watching my daughter play softball is pure joy!  I love that she is building confidence in herself from her successes and growing from the mistakes that push her to be better.”  

Emma said, “It feels good to be here. We’ve worked hard!” Her mother agreed, adding, “It’s indescribable watching her play and do what she loves. I love watching her and her team play and succeed.”  

Ally described the World Series as “fun and exciting! I have watched my older sister, Addison, get to go to the World Series with her All-Star teams twice. It looks like a lot of fun.” Her mother added, “I have really enjoyed watching Ally and her teammates during this successful All-Star season. I think my favorite part is getting to watch them grow as much as they have from start to where they are now.”  

Kenzie said, “I’m really excited, and it means we’re going to win.” Her mother said, “It’s been wonderful to watch Kenzie blossom this season.  I’ve enjoyed watching her learn how to be a part of a team and what can happen when you work hard.”  

Maccie said, “It feels good to be a part of something so big that took a lot of hard work.” Her mother said, “It makes me feel very proud and overjoyed for her.”  

Mary Blythe added, “I love having fun with my new softball friends and winning,” and her mother said, “It makes me happy to see her so happy. The more games they play, the better she wants to be.”
