Summer brings three things – high temperatures, popcorn and movies, and All-Star baseball. That’s right, our local boys and girls are gearing up for the highlight of the summer for 12 and under athletes. It’s Dixie Youth All-Star time and we have a host of local teams getting ready to begin tournament play this weekend.
The Webster Parish Journal is your source for stories every Tuesday and Thursday. Want to know who won and what young men and women made an impact? Just log on to the Journal Facebook page or our website at www.websterparishjournal.com for game summaries twice a week.
We will also be publishing team photos throughout the rest of the summer along with rosters so parents can like, share, and commemorate this special time in their child’s life.
Here’s a rundown of the local teams in action and where and when they are playing beginning today (Thursday, June 24). More local team games will be played depending on the outcomes.
