O-Zone begins WS play Saturday
SoVaNow.com / August 01, 2013The local Virginia champion Dixie Youth O-Zone all-stars have a lengthy journey ahead to Laurel, Miss., for World Series play, starting Saturday.
Virginia head coach Jerry Worley said the locals start Saturday against Georgia at 8 p.m.
The coach and the team are coming off a stirring run to the state title in South Hill.
“We’ve got really good pitching. We’ve got good depth in our pitching. We’ve got good depth in our hitting, which showed up down at the State. “We’re looking forward to the boys going down and making a stand for the State of Virginia,” said Worley.
The pitchers are Brandon Morris, Alex Lowery, Christan Worley, Jared Dawson and Seth Dawson.
Morris has a good delivery, with a fastball and change. Lowery has a good fastball, with good velocity, and he adds a changeup. Worley can place the ball well. Dawson is a left-hander, with the ability to move the ball across the plate, and Dawson is a solid fastball pitcher.
Dexter Dixon helps lead the offense, and Morris can also deliver at the plate. Lowery and Worley can also hit.
“I feel like we’ve got a very strong defense, especially in the infield. The boys work really hard, and I believe that’s our strong suit (on defense), the infield,” he said.
Jimmy Wilkins also led the locals with a high batting average, and this youngster is an asset hitting and catching. He also threw out a couple of runners trying to steal, so the locals have added confidence with Wilkins handling the catching duties.
