Rage manager Danny Hollingsworth congratulates good friend Tommy Young after Giles County won the 2007 13 year old Babe Ruth State Championship in Lewisburg.

The Marshall County Babe Ruth 13 year old All-Stars took it to the limit Tuesday night at the Jonathan D. Hollingsworth Memorial Park, but fell just short to a determined Giles County squad 4-3.

Rage manager Danny Hollingsworth never wants to lose, but losing to his good friend and longtime Giles County Babe Ruth manager Tommy Young made the loss a little easier to swallow.

"It is bittersweet, I have been coaching 37 years and have won state championships in every division, but if we were going to lose to anyone, I would want it to be to that man over there (Young)," Hollingsworth said after the game.
