Mississippi Dixie Boys and Dixie Majors Baseball: Welcome
Major Bat Rule Change For The 2018 Season:
Effective January 1, 2018:
2 and 5/8" bats used in Dixie Boys Baseball play must meet new performance standards established by USA Baseball, the national governing body of amateur baseball in the United States. These new bats will be available for purchase in September of 2017. BBCOR bats will continue to be allowed for Dixie Boys play in 2018.
All bats used in 15U and the Dixie Majors divisions (ages 15-19) will continue to require the BBCOR stamp, National High School Federation bats.
All 2018 Dixie Boys, Majors and 15 U Forms are now available for download. Got to the handouts section on the menu.
The 2018 Mississippi Dixie Boys and Dixie Majors State Meeting will be held on January 27th in Laurel. Business discussed was the new bat rule, increasing the number of teams in all areas of Ms. Dixie, funding of the scholarship fund, and awarding of bids for the State Tournaments. Hattiesburg was awarded the 13 and 14 year old state tournaments, Laurel was awarded the Pre-majors and Majors and the 15U is to be determined. Dates will be posted at a later date.
Matt Enlow of Pascagoula is the 2017 Mississippi Dixie Boys Scholarship winner. Congratulations to Matt.
