The Brookhaven Blazers travel baseball team got back into the swing of things last weekend as they played in their first tournament since COVID-19 stopped youth sports throughout the country. Playing in Denham Springs, Louisiana, the Blazers captured first place in the 11U AA South State Championship. It was the fourth tournament of the spring season for the Blazers as they’ve now grabbed three first-place finishes. The team is ranked No. 1 in the USSSA 11U AA rankings.

Lee Zumbro, Chad Leggett, Troy Orr and Tim Cunningham serve as coaches for the Blazers. Players are Cohen Leggett, Paxton Zumbro, Carter Evans, Carson Cunningham, Carter King, Kelly Burgess, Cooper Jordan, Braxton Orr, Jordyn Kees and Phillip Spencer.

The Blazers are currently 14-4 overall and will play in the 11-year old USSSA World Series in Gulf Shores, Alabama, on June 23-27. This weekend they’ll take part in a tournament in Magee.
