Ramer’s run to the World Series Championship was cut short last Monday, but the all-stars have nothing to hang their heads about after their performance against the South’s best teams at the Dixie Youth Majors World Series in Bartow, Fla.

The Tennessee state champions hailed from a town with a population of a little more than 300 people, and they arrived at the World Series, more than 750 miles away, to do battle with all-star teams from 10 different states, with towns averaging around 60,000.

No matter the size of their opponent, or their hometown, Ramer competed hard and never gave up.

Their tournament run was highlighted by Casey Coleson’s incredible World Series no-hitter in Ramer’s opening game against North Carolina, but the team could not get their bats going against Florida and Virginia to save their tournament lives.
