  • 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.

    After holding Rockwood hitless in the bottom of the first inning, Pigeon Forge took total command of the game in the second inning. The visitors scored eight runs in the frame to take an 11-0 lead.

  • Dixie Youth state tourneys...

    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.”

  • Kingston hands loss to Greenback

    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.

  • Jackets drop one to Tellico

    In just one day’s time, the Kingston Yellow Jackets went from the thrill of victory to the agony of defeat.

    The Jackets left 11 men on base as they dropped a 4-3 heartbreaker to the Tellico Plains Bears in Dixie Youth Baseball 11- to 12-year-old action.

    Neither team put runs on the board for the first inning.

    Kingston left runners on the corners in the top of the second inning as Tellico Plains scored on an RBI single by Cody Swanson, but left the bases juiced to take a 1-0 lead.

  • Tigers downed by Madisonville...

    Domination would describe the matchup between Rockwood and Madisonville.

    The Tornadoes ripped through Rockwood 13-0 Friday night.

    Madisonville scored in the top of the first off a Tanner Moser blast that went a good 275 feet.

    It was all downhill from there for the Tigers.

    Austin Ford and Josh Sloan batted in Tornado singles at the top of the second, with J.D. Wiggins hitting in a double and Nick Herrill stealing home for a 5-0 lead.
