Clay Layne (left) and Collier Day (right) are two members of South Lexington Youth Baseball’s 12 year-old All-Star team which recently qualified to compete in the Cal Ripken World Series which will be held in Alachua, Florida from August 6 – August 12. Clay is the son of Tanya Amburgey Layne and Jeff Layne of Lexington. He is also the grandson of Larry Amburgey and the great-grandson of Mae Amburgey, both of Whitesburg. Clay will soon be entering the seventh grade at Beaumont Middle School where he hopes to play basketball again this year. Collier is the son of Stephen and Sarah Day of Lexington and the grandson of R.C. and Frances Day of Whitesburg. Stephen has served as President of South Lexington Youth Baseball for the last four years and is also a coach for the All-Stars. This fall, Collier will be a seventh-grader at Jessie Clark Middle School. As soon as the World Series is over, he’ll put on pads and hit the football field as a Jessie Clark Eagle. Both families attend Southland Christian Church, and both boys enjoy participating in youth group activities.
