The Hazard-Perry 13/14 year old baseball team participated in the state junior league tournament this past week. The team played five games in the tournament, and came home with the title.

Hazard-Perry opened round-robin play with the team from Richmond, and came away with the 4-0 victory. They then lost 3-8 to Paintsville, putting them in the loser’s bracket.

Hazard-Perry went on a roll at that point, defeating Richmond again 7-3, and avenging the lost to Paintsville 7-6 in an 11 inning thriller.

The title then came down to Hazard-Perry and Paintsville for the title. Hazard-Perry went on top early, and held off Paintsville late for the 6-4 win, and the state title.
