PULASKI, July 11 — It’s the situation athletes dream of…two outs in the last inning, two men on base, down by one…full count.

That’s the situation that Chayse Austin found himself in at the 12U Major/60 state tournament in Pulaski on July 11. The Shenandoah 12U All-Stars had their backs against the wall — literally one pitch from elimination…and then…

Austin belted a double down the right-field line that scored two runs, won the state championship and earned the young slugger Most Valuable Player honors for the state tournament.

Manager Chad Austin and these “never give up” 12-year-old All-Stars are now headed to the far Northeast to compete in the Cal Ripken 2022 12U Major/60 World Series in Waterville, Maine on Aug. 4-14. A dozen teams from across the U.S., including eight regional champions, will compete over 10 days in the first Cal Ripken World Series to ever be held in Maine
