It’s safe to say that the Covington Countys Blue Babe Ruth baseball team doesn’t have the “blues” this summer.

In fact, CC Blue baseball coach Jonathan McKinney said the team is doing pretty good so far in summer ball action.

Covington County just got back from a weekend tournament down in Ft. Walton Beach, Fla.

CC Blue won three out of four games at the tournament in Florida, McKinney said.

“We’re doing pretty good,” he said. “We’ve been doing well on defense, but in hitting we’ve been struggling a little bit.

“Other than that, we’ve got to hit the ball,” he said. “We did score needed runs at the tournament, but they weren’t enough to win the last game.”

Covington County Blue played two-five inning games last night at LBWCC against Butler County.

Then on Thursday, the Blue team will travel to play Brewton. CC Red will face Butler on Thursday as well.

They will finish their week on Saturday morning, where Covington County will face Baker, Fla., at LBWCC at 11.

Select players from the Blue and Red teams will participate in the 2013 16-18 Babe Ruth Baseball World Series in August.

The tournament will be held at LBWCC in Andalusia from Aug. 15-22.

The host team will be selected at a later date.
