DALE COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — Friday, the Dothan Southern 8U All-Stars went up against Tuscumbia.
We started in the bottom half of three, Dothan up 5-2 when Ja’Kyrie Rumph hits one to second. He looks like he’s going to beat it out at first when the ball is overthrown, so he bolts for two.
Coach starts waving him in for the three-bagger where he’s roughed up a bit but finds a way to keep his feet. The throw at home is not in time, Rumph steals all the bases and Dothan is up 6-2
Next at-bat, Xander Jones knocks one to center for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! It looks like at first that he has an easy stand-up double.
He commits for third, the relay to the bag is in time, but he’s safe under the tag. Dothan would go on to take this one 26-6.
“It’s a great opportunity to see these other boys play,” mother of Jace Johnson, Tiffany McKenzie said. “And it’s just something that they will always remember as they get older.”
