Laurel to host 2016 Dixie Youth World Series

The City of Laurel will make history again when it hosts the 2016 Dixie Youth World Series. Laurel Parks & Recreation Director Elvin Ulmer announced the city will host five world series: AA (Machine-Pitch and Coach-Pitch), AAA, Ozone and Majors events during a two-week period in July and August 2016. Laurel was the first city to host the Dixie Youth O-Zone World Series in addition to the Traditional Dixie Youth World Series in 2013. Laurel received such positive feedback from the 2009 and 2013 events that it was an easy decision for the Dixie Youth officials to try another first with Laurel hosting five world series.

“I am excited about Laurel hosting the five world series simultaneously; this is something that has never been done in the history of Dixie Youth Baseball,” Ulmer said.
