Familiar faces make WRALL all-star teams

awoolen@macon.comJune 18, 2014 

WARNER ROBINS -- Practice and games have already started for the All Star teams from Warner Robins American Little League.

The teams were announced June 13, two weeks before the District 5 tournament begins.

Some familiar faces will be managing the 11- to 12-year-old teams. Roger Stella, who was the manager in 2010, won the Little League Softball World Series with his daughter, Sierra Stella. Now, younger sister Raegen Stella will get her chance, after being selected to the Major 11-12 All Star Softball team.

Former league President Mark Knight takes the helm for an 11- to 12-year-old baseball team. Joining him as a coach is Buddy Deal, who helped the WRALL team earn a berth in the 2011 Little League Baseball World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Knight and Deal’s team is holding two practices a day, three times a week.

The only returning player is Jacob Pierce, who was on the District 5 championship team that lost in the state championship game to Columbus Northern Little League.

“I’ve got talent,” Deal said of his players after just a few days with them.

District games for the 11- to 12-year-old teams begin June 27 at 8:30 p.m. for both softball and baseball at the WRALL fields.

The 7- to 8-year-old kid pitch teams have a head start with district and sectional games already held.

All that is left is the state tournament, which begins 6 p.m. Friday for softball and 10 a.m. Saturday for baseball.
