Dixie Youth Tourney comes to town

BLYTHEWOOD – The Blythewood Youth Baseball and Softball League has been selected to host Dixie Youth Baseball tournaments for a fourth consecutive year.

The Dixie Youth Minor’s All-Star Sub District Baseball Tournament will begin on June 15 and run through June 21 at Blythewood Park with seven teams competing.

The Dixie Youth Ozone All-Star District Baseball kicks on June 17 and will also finished up on June 21, with five teams participating.

Blythewood claimed the 2014 crown in The Coaches Pitch Sub-District Tournament, and in 2015 they earned the top spot in The Minor’s Sub-District Tournament. Blythewood hosted both of those events.

Last year, the Town hosted The Minor’s District Tournament, and continued their streak of home-field advantage with another win. That team pulled off a victory in the State Championship, and then made a third-place run in The Dixie Youth World Series.

The first game for Blythewood is at 8 p.m. on Friday against Dentsville.
