Martinez-Evans Little League intermediate and big league teams should know what to expect when they play host to their respective tournaments this week.
The MELL 17/18 Big League team, coached by Woodie Melton, has seven players who played in the 2013 Senior League World Series. Robert Peel’s 12/13 intermediate squad has nine who were state runners-up last year in the 12-year-old group and eight from the 2013 state champion and Southeast Region runner-up team.
“I think the team is very well-prepared,” Peel said. “Depending on how the competition is, we should go far.”
