ADDISON - They came together approximately five years ago to play America’s pastime. Now they are state champions.
The Addison 11U Dizzy Dean baseball team brought home the state championship June 25, defeating Madison City 10-4 at Palmer Park in Madison to claim the title. It was the culmination of a great run at the state tournament which saw the team go undefeated. They took down Center Point 11-4, Huffman 10-4 and also had a close call from the team they would ultimately face in the championship, defeating Madison initially 3-2.
“It was great,” head coach Keith Thompson said. “We had some really good pitching, great defense.”
Addison also had the MVP of the state tournament, Jed Wilkins.
