“Our tournament teams generally do very well in tournament play,” Dickey Said. “They have won a lot of tournaments and advanced many times to state and national play, including winning the Dixie Boys World Series in 1991 and 2004, the Dixie Minor World Series in 2005 and the AAA Pitching Machine World Series in 2012”

The softball teams made the switch from slow pitch to fast pitch in 1997 and the results have been strong for them as well.

The 2012 X-Play team finished runner-up in the World Series, on its home field
