Softball team learns much in first-ever trip to World Series

SEMINOLE – Television cameras were rolling as their bus pulled in. They were known as “the team from Florida.”

The Seminole Junior Warhawks arrived in Southaven, Miss., Thursday, July 22, to play in the Dizzy Dean World Series as the first-ever club in their division from the Sunshine State. The under14 fastpitch softball team caused a stir at the event.

“The opening ceremonies were really impressive,” said Head Coach Kim Grawcock. “There may have been 20,000 people in attendance.”

The Dizzy Dean program offers baseball and softball championships each summer in several age groups and many of the tournaments are being played in Southaven.

Most teams are from Mississippi, Tennessee and Alabama.

The Seminole team dropped its opening game Saturday morning as they faced an experienced club from Batesville, Miss. They fell again Sunday to another club from the same state, but felt as though they gained valuable experience.

“We didn’t win on the field, but made lots of friends and learned much,” said Grawcock, the leader and guiding force behind the team. “The kids have had a great time here. We plan to be back next year and try again. We should have most of the same players back and we will be much better. This was a big trip for us and now we know what to expect when we compete here. There are some good teams here and we will need to work hard to be ready.”

The squad left Southaven, around noon on Monday, July 26, for the long bus ride back to Pinellas County.
