Community support needed for Dixie Girls Softball World Series

Thursday, July 25, 2013 - 4:02pm

Volunteers are needed during the Dixie Girls Softball World Series, to be held in Alexandria, August 2-8, 2013. The tournament includes all five age divisions, under the Dixie Softball organization, accounting for 60 teams.

Dixie needs a volunteer for each participating team to act as a point of contact for questions, directions, recommendations, etc.

Examples of questions would be:

  • Where to eat lunch?
  • How to get to the hotel from the ball field?
  • How to get to the Mall from the ball field?
  • Where is the closest Walgreens or CVS?
  • Where is the closest washateria?

There will be an opening banquet at the Alexandria Riverfront Center on Friday, August 2, with play beginning Saturday at Johnny Downs Sports Complex on Hwy. 28 West and Vandenburg Drive in Alexandria, and continuing through Thursday. Approximately 6,000 visitors are expected in the Alexandria area for this event.

Each team’s “Mom” or “Dad” will be admitted on one of the games, and are encouraged to go support “their” team. Other things team “moms” or “dads” have done include leaving “goodies” at the hotel, a personal note to the team, or taking uniforms to be washed after games (not necessary but a nice touch).

Sign up today by calling the Convention & Visitors Bureau (ask for Sam) at (318) 442-9546 or email
