Clarksville Majors continue playoff run at state tournament

SoVaNow.com / July 17, 2013


The Clarksville Majors All-Stars team will continue their playoff odyssey on Friday at the Dixie Youth Majors State Tournament in Farmville.

Clarksville has a start time of 1:30 p.m. with a matchup with Lunenburg. All local fans are encouraged to go out and support the team.

Clarksville has played some great ball in recent weeks, closing out the District 2 tournament in Lawrenceville last week with a 3-0 record and claiming the championship with a 5-4 win over Emporia.

Clarksville’s pitching was on the money in Lawrenceville. Their bats were hot when they needed to be, and their defensive play was quite good.

Teams looking to derail Clarksville’s dream of a World Series berth are Prince Edward-Farmville, Goochland, Powhatan, Emporia, Dinwiddie Nationals and Buckingham.

Emporia enters the tournament as the District 2 runner-up.
