History was recently made by a “Dream Team” of 13 year-olds. The Five Cities Babe Ruth youth baseball team won the World Series on Thursday in Mountain Home, Arkansas. For 43 years, a 13U Babe Ruth league from the Five Cities had been trying to win state to advance to regionals. The one and only time it’s been done was in 1975. This year, the team secured the state title then went onto beat Eagle Pass, Texas, 7-6 on Thursday, taking home the national championship.

The team says the secret to it’s success is the ability to have fun. Although the kids know how to have fun, they transform into serious players during games. Five Cities coach Mike Afzali explained to the Baxter Bulletin, “Eight of our boys have played together for the past five years. I’ve coached my son since he was 4, and I’ve never seen a more tight-knit group than these boys. They’re like brothers.” Century 21 Hometown Realty salutes the hard work, dedication and camaraderie that made this group of young men champions.

Century 21 Hometown Realty also recently celebrated our own “Dream Team” of C21 agents at the Annual Hometown Realty Beach Bash. Over 65 agents turned out to enjoy the final days of summer and embracing the hard work of fellow agents. “Just like the young Babe Ruth baseball team, we understand the value of having fun together and rewarding jobs well done,” explains Jack Hardy, CEO. Agents not only enjoyed the summer sun, a delicious barbecue but took home a treasure trove of prizes including Costco gift cards, movie tickets, beach chairs, umbrellas and Bille Jean Chadwick won a 50’ HDTV! If you missed it be sure to look for our upcoming Christmas Party that is always a huge holiday hit!
