The Southern Plains 10-year-old all-star team headed east to Lakin, Kansas, July 3 to take on the Southwest Kansas all stars. On a hot evening the Southern Plains bats were even hotter. Bryson Hyle bounced one over the fence along with 3 other hits. Case Nelson had 3 hits along with Devin Eaton and Zach Dickey. Poncho Saenz and Truman King collected 2 hits on the ball game. Defensively the SP All Stars made some amazing plays by Stockton Mitchek, Case Nelson, and Damion Molina.
