Shelby County's 13-year-old Babe Ruth All-star team is a well-rounded squad that is hoping to improve on last year's district run.
The team lost to Frankfort in the district, but they did advance to the state tournament as the host team.
This year, the squad will get to play the district tournament at home.
"I think that's an advantage for us," Coach J.R. Wiley said. "The guys are little more comfortable here, and they're used to the field."
Wiley said the team's defense should be a strength.
