Baseball players and fans of all ages flocked to local ball parks this weekend for the start of the Motley Dixie Youth League season.

The league hosted games at the Motley Ruritan Club, which has two fields and the Altavista Area YMCA, which has a field of its own. League Secretary Tabitha McCorkle said the league started with just one team. Now in its sixth year, Motley Dixie Youth has multiple teams for various ages, and more sponsors than ever before.
