The Patterson 12u Babe Ruth All Stars have gone undefeated in bracket play and are just one win away from their second consecutive World Series championship.
Patterson, the Southwest USA Champions, defeated the Ohio Valley Champions from Kentucky on Friday to reach the Babe Ruth World Series championship on Saturday at 2 p.m. CST.
Patterson automatically wins the championship with a win in the first game. If Patterson loses in the first championship game, a second game will be played following the first game.
Patterson is not the only St. Mary Parish team currently competing in a World Series. The Franklin 12u State Champions boys team is in Lumberton, NC playing in the Dixie Youth World Series.
