The South Boston Dixie Pre-Majors all-stars may have bowed out after just three games in the Dixie Pre-Majors World Series this year, but South Boston still received an honor considered in most circles just as prestigious, coming away with the Sportsmanship Award.
The World Series Sportsmanship Award made it a clean sweep of sportsmanship awards for the Pre-Majors this tournament season.
The South Boston Pre-Majors all-stars also received the Sportsmanship Award for the Dixie Pre-Majors State Tournament in addition to winning the state title.
These aren’t the first two Sportsmanship Awards for five members of the South Boston Pre-Majors all-star team.
Ryan Yates, Nick Anderson, Avery Anderson, Jacob New and Tyler Dunn were members of the 2008 Halifax County Dixie Junior Boys all-star team that received the Sportsmanship Award at the Dixie Junior Boys World Series.
