Tennessee State Tournament Hosting Requirements


To provide additional working funds for the State Organization, each Tournament Host will contribute a minimum of$50.00 per team per tournament to the State DIXIE YOUTH Treasury for the privilege of hosting a tournament. These fees must be paid prior to the start of the tournament. These fees apply to Sub-District and District Tournaments at all levels (A, AA, AAA, Major, "O"Zone).







In order to bid on a State Tournament, a potential Host must have previously hosted a Sub-District or District Tournament in DIXIE YOUTH BASEBALL.



All applications for Hosting a State Tournament must be submitted in writing to the State Director on or before June 30 of the year PRIOR to the year in which the tournament is to be held. If no application is received, the State Director, with the approval of the State BOARD OF DIRECTORS, will determine the site. Leagues will be required to make a presentation to the State BOARD OF DIRECTORS at their annual spring board meeting. Inspection of facilities and organization of each bidding League will be made by the State Organization prior to this presentation. A final inspection of the Host site will be made no later than thirty (30) days prior to the beginning of the Stale Tournament. To receive a State Tournament, a majority of votes cast by the Board of Directors at the Board meeting (held at annual spring meeting) will be necessary; if no one League receives a majority of votes cast, a run-off will be held between the top two (2) Leagues plus any ties for the two (2) top positions.
