10U all-stars open state tournament Saturday

Glasgow Daily Times

GLASGOW — While some teams may be heading to the 10-Under Little League State Baseball Tournament in Prestonsburg nervous and anxious, Jeff Jessie and the Glasgow All-Stars are loose and having fun. And that, Jessie said, is just fine with him.

“Going into the district, I thought we were more tense, not knowing what to expect. And now going into the state tournament, we know a little more about what to expect and we’re more relaxed,” said Jessie.

“I told the kids winning the district was our main goal. Now that we’re at the state, I told them to just go have fun.

“We’re going to try and win the tournament, but we’re going to let the kids enjoy this. We want them to have fun. And if they have fun and play their game, I think they will come out winners either way.”

The state tournament will be played at StoneCrest Sports Park in Prestonsburg.
