During the past few days, the Cannon County Dixie Youth Association crowned their 2015 champions in both baseball and softball in six different age divisions. All of the teams in each league had great seasons, but only six of them were crowned champions. Here a recap and photo of each of the teams, who played in their respective title game along with quotes with some of the coaches and players about how much fun they have playing or coaching the National Pastime.
(3/4 T-Ball) K &H Heating and Cooling Hotrods 9, Christie-Q-BBQ Storm 8
Bobo-"With this group of kids, it has been great fun, because we have had great parents. They have made it easy to coach. With having good kids and good parents, it made being a coach so much easier, because you did not have to do a lot. There was no controversy, ever, and that is one reason we had an undefeated season. Those girls are 32-0 as the Ponytail Express."
