Haleyville will host two major Dixie Youth Baseball tournaments this weekend. These tournaments are expected to bring large groups of visitors to the city, which will likely make a big impact on the city's economy over the coming days.
The first tournament is Dixie Youth District 11 AA Tournament. AA division is for 8 years and under. Teams attending are listed on bracket link below.
This is the third time in seven years Haleyville has hosted this tournament, and the tournament is awarded by bid. We would like to encourage everyone to attend and support Haleyville. The winner advances to the State Tournament.
Haleyville Dixie Youth is also hosting the OZONE Sub District tournament for 12 years old and under. Below is link to bracket and teams. Top three finshers advance to the District Tournament.
These tournaments combined will bring sixteen baseball teams into Haleyville for almost a week and should be a huge impact to local merchants.
