HATLEY, Miss. (WTVA) - The Hatley 7/8U All-State baseball team is headed to the Dixie Youth Baseball Machine Pitch World Series.

They'll need some help getting there.  

The team will be holding a fundraiser July 12, 13 and 14 at the Piggly Wiggly in Amory.  They will be selling chances to win a YETI cooler and a recliner.  Other donations are greatly appreciated and accepted.

In June the 7/8U All-Stars won the Mississippi Dixie Youth Baseball District Tournament in Hamilton.  Last weekend they placed third at the Mississippi Dixie Youth Baseball State Tournament in Hattiesburg.  As a result, the team received an invitation to attend the Dixie Youth Machine Pitch World Series July 26-30 in Ruston, Louisiana.

They will be the only team representing Missisisppi in the World Series.
