Magee may not have come out on top in the final dance, but the Trojans have nothing to hang their heads about. District champs, South State Champs and State runner up are titles the 2021 Trojans can claim.

In the words of Coach Eubanks,” we didn’t play well today and they did.” Eubanks has been a driving force with this team. He loves baseball…but more importantly, he loves his guys!
Tryout for the 2022 baseball season will be held Monday, weather permitting, at 3:30. Summer workout for baseball will begin June 14th from 7-11.
Congratulations to an awesome team. We at MageeNews.com have watched these guys play baseball since they were in City League. Thanks for the memories.
