The Laurel Jones County Dixie Youth Baseball league concluded play on Thursday.
Cade McKinnon is excited because his Rangers just won the 7-8 year-old AL Championship.
But Trey Crawford says the league teaches his son much more than how to win.
"He's learned to win and lose, and he's learned how to fight, and practice, and [he] knows that if it's something he wants to do and get better at, then he can do that."
Crawford also coaches the 11-12 year-old Cardinals.
"I really enjoy coaching these kids."
Something he says is a personally rewarding experience.
"It's an awesome feeling to be able to coach down here, and see those kids from the first of the year to the end of the year - just how much better they get, and how much better they enjoy the game."
Six-year youth baseball coach Michael Howard agrees.
"Seeing them progress and mature as people is what baseball's all about."
Howard coaches the 11-12 year-old Pirates.
Though the season over, he says the kids cherish something more about the experience than the game itself.
"The last day's always a day that you say your goodbyes for the baseball season, but you'll keep friendships for life."
Cade looks forward to next season, but says he's already learned a lesson that transcends the game of baseball.
"Just to never stop, just keep on trying."
