City of Oxford Awarded 2017 Dixie Youth World Series Tournament
Call it a homerun for the City of Oxford. On Monday, the Dixie Youth Baseball League awarded the city hosting rights to the 2017 World Series Tournament. It will take place at the new Oxford Sports Complex - which is in its final stages of construction. The Dixie Youth Baseball Series is one of the most competitive little leagues in the nation, which will certainly draw a big crowd in 2017. The sports complexes official name will be Choccolocco Park- complete with baseball and softball fields as well as a track facility. Officials have also submitted a bid to host the OVC softball tournament. They are looking to have the complex finished by May 12th, 2016.
