TUSCUMBIA, AL -- It's been nearly 50 years since an Ozark baseball team captured a Dixie State Championship. That streak is history, as the Ozark All-Stars captured the 17U Dixie Pre-Majors state title.
Ozark beat East Montgomery 9-6 in the championship game on Monday, capping a perfect 6-0 run at the state tournament. It's the first state title for an Ozark baseball team at the Dixie level since 1966.
With the win, Ozark has advanced to the Dixie Pre-Major World Series in Chipley, Florida. The tournament will be played from July 26-31.
Ozark will play the Louisiana state champions on Saturday, July 26th.
