April 13, 2012

Bude, Ms -  A estimated crowd of over 400 people attended the 50th Year Anniversary Celebration of the Franklin County Dixie Youth Baseball League.   After the first game of the night, Mr. Prentiss Dillion, an elder Pine Knott team player from the 60's, tossed the first ball out then the action and celebration began.  Many former team members and their families were in attendance. The league consolidated in the early 60's and has created many player memories throughout the years.
