Congrats to the Rocky Mount 14-U Babe Ruth baseball team for winning their conference tournament 8-4 over Southern Nash Monday evening at Nash Central High School.
Despite having only the minimum nine players in attendance, Rocky Mount used a seven-run second inning to give it a comfortable lead early.
Bradley Jackson, who plays for Rocky Mount Academy, got the win for Rocky Mount, while Nolan Farmer was saddled with the loss for Southern.
Many of the Rocky Mount players played at Edwards Middle School last season and will be on the JV squad at Rocky Mount High next spring.
After the game, the Nash County 14-U All-Star team was announced. Yes, the same age group of kids that have had so much success for Nash County this decade. The team begins district play next week in Greenville.
