Longview Boys Head for Dixie World Series

A group of Longview youngsters are on their way to Georgia, vying for a chance at a national baseball title. Dozens of friends and family members turned out Thursday morning to wish well to the Longview Dixie League champions who will be representing Texas in the upcoming Dixie World Series. The team of 13 year olds were given an enthusiastic send-off, and boarded a charter bus for the trip. For many of the parents, it's an extremely proud time just to have their kids participate in the chance at a U.S. title. The boys will face the Florida champions in the first round of the tournament.
