Martinez, GA (WJBF) -- In the scorching Georgia heat Wednesday afternoon, the Martinez/Evans 15 & 16 year old senior little league team was hard at work. They weren't practicing. Instead, they were giving back to the community.
The players built a raised garden for residents at Elm Croft Senior Living Facility in Martinez. Coach Matt Abrosious says he preaches to his kids to not just focus on themselves. He says his team is about more than just winning baseball games. Although, they are pretty good at that too.
They won the Georgia state championship in the 15/16 year old division. They will now play in the Southeast Regional in Debary, Florida next weekend. They will be trying to advance to the senior division of the Little League World Series.
