HARLEM, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - On Saturday, fans, and families packed the streets of Harlem to celebrate an end to a historic season.

As the bus rolled into Harlem, fans stood waiting for them to open the doors to welcome home the 2023 GHSA 3A state champions.

While time has passed since their last state win, the community support surrounding the Harlem baseball program has only grown stronger. Head coach Jimmie Lewis, who’s been at the helm of the Bulldogs for more than 40 years said, “Ain’t no place like Harlem, Georgia. This is God’s country, God’s people. And this is the ticket. Small town USA. Don’t give me nothing else, but make sure it’s H.A.R.L.EM.”
