Dixie Youth Baseball World Series coming to Bossier in 2024
BOSSIER PARISH, La. (KSLA) - Mayor Tommy Chandler has confirmed the Dixie Youth Baseball World Series will be coming to Bossier in 2024.
“I think it’s going to be great for everybody to come here to Bossier City, because not only the kids can have fun, but also the parents,” he said.
The series will take place at the Tinsley Park Sports Complex.
“The in-fields are turf, the out-fields are grass. So, we won’t have to worry about a rain out. We have bleachers. We have big fans over the bleachers. We have a two-story concession stand area.. Also in there you will have a place for the umpires to change like actually take showers so forth,” said Clay Bohanan, director of parks and recreation for Bossier City.
As many as 70 teams will be coming to the city! The event is scheduled to begin on July 25 and will run through Aug. 7.
“Dixie has two divisions, division one and division two. Much like college football.” Both of these have their separate world series. Division two world series would be first. So, basically, all the state champions will then converge for a world series. It’ll be 36 teams one week and 36 teams the next week,” said Lee Carr, vice president of Dixie Baseball in Bossier.
Chandler said the event will bring in a lot of people and revenue.
“It’s going to be a good economic impact in Bossier City. Our hotels will be full, our restaurants will be full. People will be happy.”
