An 8-and-under fast-pitch softball team is quickly making a name for itself in Philadelphia.
The XPlosiions all-star squad just won the south state championship in Eupora, and now the girls qualify for the Dizzy Dean World Series this weekend in Southaven.
Before the World Series, the XPlosions have posted a 5-1 record in all-star competition.
"Well, this is the first year that we've had fast-pitch all-stars in Philadelphia," says head coach Richie Goldman. "So this is the first team that's won state. We had 6 other divisions that competed and they all finished in 2nd place. So we're really proud of these 8-year-olds."
