INTENT OF DIXIE SOFTBALL ORGANIZERS
The most fundamental intent of the organizers of DSI was to develop a program which would emphasize local autonomy. It was our philosophy and belief that the parents and workers in each local league know what is best for them and their children. Since the mores (customs) of our people vary from community to community, even with in the same districts, it was necessary to leave such things as night softball, team selections, and league operation up to the local league. there were imposed upon the leagues certain fundamental rules that were deemed necessary for good organization and which would keep one league from gaining unfair advantage over another such as boundary and population limitations, the number of teams in a league and the age brackets.
The next important philosophical belief was that leagues affiliated with the prorgam should have a voice in running the program. thus the provisions for electing national directors, state directors, and district directors from among the leagues to serve with the organizers were made. Any govermental structure between the local leagues and the national board exists for one reason..... to serve the local leagues as administrative adjuncts of the Board. The imposition of any rule on a local league should be done with utmost reluctance and absolute necessity.
