Rockwood’s demographic will soon have a profound, although temporary, shift in late July.
The town will soon be bustling with 7- and 8-year-olds and their families from Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.
Rockwood will be hosting the 2013 Dixie Youth AA baseball world series.
“It is a huge deal for Rockwood,” said Rockwood Park and Recreation Director Jody Mioduski. “I need a lot of help; I need a lot of donations to pull this thing off.”
He said it will be worth it.
