The 2013 Dixie Youth Baseball World Series in Laurel, Miss., is now in the history books with champions crowned in three divisions. All eyes (and ears) in Bartow were focused on the Majors division as the local team was in action, representatives of the state of Florida. Through the efforts of WWBF 1130AM, those who couldn’t make the 800-mile one-way trip to the games themselves were kept informed and entertained of the team’s progress on a daily basis.
The Bartow squad started the tournament with afternoon play last Saturday against the state champions from Arkansas. Bartow showed their balance in producing offense as well as strong pitching and good defense en route to a 9-2 opening win. Their next opponent was the team from Georgia who had a pretty potent offense of their own. Georgia won the Sunday game by a 14-7 count to send the Florida champs down to the lower bracket.
