MONROE — The Walton County Board of Commissioners honored a history-making youth baseball team Tuesday night.

The 10-and-under All-Stars from Central Walton won the U.S. Select Sports Association World Series in Gulfport, Mississippi, recently. They became the first Walton County youth baseball team to win a World Series-level tournament.

Chairman Kevin Little said it's just the first big baseball honor to come through the Historic Walton County Courthouse. The Board of Commissioners will honor the 2017 Loganville High School baseball team at its Aug. 1 meeting.

The Red Devils won the Class AAAAA Georgia High School Association state championship, the third in the school's history, all since 2008. Former Loganville Athletic Director Tommy Stringer is a member of the Board of Commissioners.
