Dozens of Dixie League baseball teams from Texas are competing in Center this weekend during state playoff elimination action at Center’s Lions Club Ballpark. Teams include: Center, Panola County, EMC, Onalaska, Kilgore, Willis, Bullard, Liberty, Central, Fairfield, Trinity, Overton, Tri-Cities, Anahuac, Livingston, Splendora, Huntington, Cleveland, and Bullard.

Two teams from Center played late on Saturday. Center faced Panola in the 2019 Ozone South Regional State Tournament but fell 10-1. Center’s 2019 AAA South team faced Kilgore in the Region I State Tournament. They trailed until the final out but tied things up and won after exploding in a seventh inning rally which gave them a 19-8 win.

Action continues in Center on Sunday until the winners of the three tournaments are determined.
