Brookhaven Academy needed just one win Friday in Flora to win the state title. The Cougars did just that, rallying to beat Tri-County 14-4. They take home their first MAIS championship since 2010.
BA got a pep talk from their most famous alum. 2017 MLB All-Star Corey Dickerson sent the team this message before first pitch.
Thank you Corey Dickerson for your message to the team! Corey and his family will be keeping up with the Cougars tonight from Pittsburgh @Pirates— BA Cougars (@BA_Cougars) May 18, 2018
