    The first two days of the Dixie Youth District 8 AAA Tournament produced different results for the Harriman Blue Devils as they split their first two games.

    In last week's tourney, Kingston won four games by a combined 23 runs, but their two victories against Sweetwater and host Madisonville have been by a total of three runs combined.

  • AA Jackets headed to World Series

    The Kingston AA All-Stars are headed to the Dixie Youth World Series.
    The 7 and 8 year-old Jackets accomplished the feat this weekend with a runner-up finish in the Dixie Youth AA State Tournament in Rockwood.

    Kingston came oh so close to winning the state championship as they entered Sunday’s final day of play with an undefeated record, but a pair of losses to eventual champion Madison Central left the Jackets tied for second place with Signal Mountain.

    All three teams qualified for the Dixie Youth AA World Series that will be played in Florence, SC beginning on Friday, July 29.

    Rockwood’s Mike “Brillo” Miller Sports Complex will be a busy place later this week as 32 of the best Dixie Youth baseball teams in the state of Tennessee will be in Roane County for the 2011 Dixie Youth A and AA State Tournaments.

    “We’re real excited to have the Dixie Youth State Tournaments in Rockwood,” Rockwood Mayor James Watts said. “A lot of people have worked really hard to bring the event here and we’re real pleased to be hosting it.”

    Armed with timely hitting and exceptional pitching, the Kingston Yellow Jackets buzzed past the Greenback Cherokees in 11- to 12-year-old Dixie Youth League state tournament action.

    Both teams left runners on second base in the first inning. Kingston scored its first run at the bottom of the second on a balk by the Greenback pitcher, followed by RBI singles by Benji Headrick and Jadon Hensley and an RBI off an error to take a 4-0 advantage.
