McCaleb and George earn spot on State Games baseball team
By TAYLOR HAWKINS
On Wednesday, two Yazoo City baseball players earned spots on the State Games of Mississippi District 3 roster.
Tyler George of Yazoo County and Powell McCaleb partook in a combine at the Mississippi Delta Community College and were among the 18 of 40 or so participants who were chosen.
The State Games of Mississippi is a baseball tournament pitting standout high school players from across the state against each other. This year’s tournament will be held at Meridian Community College.
George, who has been the starting shortstop for Yazoo County since he was in the eighth grade, does not take all of the credit for being selected.
“It was a great accomplishment, but I couldn’t do it without God,” George said. “Recently I went to an FCA Camp and I gave my life to Christ. He’s showing me new things, and making these tryouts really makes me feel blessed.”
