MORE THAN A GAME
Let us tell you a story – About a guy, a girl and the team of baseball players they love – continuing the long-standing standing tradition that is the Hattiesburg Black Sox. Our baseball team started in 1941 by Mr. Milton Barnes – a man who refused to be told that he could not walk into a ball park – so he changed the game. He made it possible for African America men to play the game of baseball and decades later he took a chance on a gritty catch – Trey Aby – and the rest is history.
What you don’t see on social media, news or interviews is the true fuel behind our fire. What better way to keep that torch lit than by our very own boss lady – Heather Aby. Like Milton Barnes she never played the game but she loves it as much as him and is also not interested in being told no. Heather shatters ceilings with her Southern flair.
