Last summer, the Cochran Bleckley Rec. Department made their debut in Dixie Youth baseball. It was a successful one with both the 8 and 10-u teams going to state and the 10-u team finishing third. If the 10-u team advances to state this year, local fans won't have to travel to watch.
Georgia Dixie Youth Baseball announced Friday that Cochran would be the host for this year's state championship tournament. CBRD Director Andy Brand said in a release they were honored to have been selected to host amongst all the organizations that play Dixie Youth Baseball. He added "This opportunity also allows us to help the community. Teams from all over the state will be coming to Cochran staying in our hotels, eating in our restaurants, and buying gas at our stations. It is a win/win situation.”
