Just a few short weeks ago Brewton Babe Ruth League president Mike Perry along with Joey Shell were scrambling just to put an Advanced Babe Ruth League together for the Brewton area.
Not only were they able to put the league together, but they also helped land the Brewton area the association's biggest prize in Alabama.
Brewton has been chosen as the host for next month's Advanced Babe Ruth State Tournament.
The tournament, which runs from July 12-16, is expected to be played at both the T.R. Miller and W.S. Neal High School fields.
There will be two divisions of the tournament, one for 16-year-olds and the other for 16-18 year-olds. Both tournaments will use a double-elimination format.
