PHENIX CITY, Ala. (WTVM) - The Chattahoochee Valley Pirates are back at work after winning the Alabama Community College Conference Tournament last Thursday in Ozark, Ala.

The Pirates' 11-5 victory over Alabama Southern meant the Pirates earned their first trip ever to the Junior College World Series in Grand Junction, Colorado. They say they plan on sticking to what's worked for them all season long.

"You can't get too focused on the Colorado air and try and hit home runs," catcher Jared Martin said. "You just got to play the game we've been playing, line drives and doubles, and stealing bases, pitching well and good defense. That's really what we've been focusing on."

Shortstop and ACCC Player of the Year John Holland agreed.

"We don't want our heads to inflate, and think that just because we are at the world series we got to try and do something different to win a ball game," said Holland. "It's still going to take the exact same things we've been working on all season to get our 'W.'"

The top ranked Pirates will face No. 2 Delgado Community College from Covington, La. in their World Series opener. The first pitch is scheduled for Saturday at 9:30 pm ET at Sam Suplizio Field.
