South Boston Dixie picks up tournaments

SoVaNow.com / February 11, 2013
South Boston Dixie Youth officials landed two state tournaments for the 2014 summer baseball postseason.

The program will host the 2014 Dixie Youth O-Zone state tournament and the minor league state tournament session for Dixie Youth. Both state tournaments will be played at the Day Complex. Dates will be announced later.

South Boston has also made bids on two Halifax County-South Boston Dixie Jr. Boys and Dixie Boys regional tournaments for this summer, but no decision has been reached about those events at this point.

One other major announcement came out at the state meeting Saturday in Lynchburg.

Starting in 2013, Dixie Boys who are league age 15 now have the option to stay in Dixie Boys or move to the Dixie Pre-Majors program, giving players more flexibility. In years past, once a player reached the age of 15, they had to move to the Pre-Majors program.

Halifax County-South Boston Dixie Boys will offer this new option to local 15-year-old boys.
