SoVaNow.com / September 12, 2013


The Halifax County/South Boston Sports Hall of Fame will honor the memory of Terry Meadows Sr. at its annual Sports Hall of Fame Golf Classic played at the Green’s Folly Golf Course on Friday.

Meadows was a member of the Sports Hall of Fame board of directors for several years serving on many of the Hall of Fame committees.

Meadows was instrumental in having the bridge on Vaughan Street over U. S. 360 named after Hugh Moore, the first president of the Sports Hall of Fame and one its founders.

Meadows got his start in sports playing baseball in the Dixie Youth League. He was a dominating pitcher for the Rotary Team from 1959-61. He also was a standout pitcher and shortstop in the Babe Ruth League from 1962-64.

He coached several years in both Dixie Youth and Babe Ruth Leagues and later served on the Board of Directors of Dixie Youth Baseball.

Those interested in sponsoring a team and/or playing in the Halifax County/South Boston Sports Hall of Fame Golf Classic are asked to contact John Burton at 434-579-3237 or Bobby Wilborn at 434-579-4222
