|Vidalia, Ferriday DYB's merging|
Vidalia and Ferriday Dixie Youth Baseball Leagues will merge this year to form one Concordia Parish Dixie Youth Baseball League.
"Ferriday's numbers were low, so we decided to form one league," said Concordia Recreation District No. 2 Director Mike Bowlin, who will serve with Gary Hinton as co-presidents of the league.
Bowlin said the Concordia Parish league will have 31 teams and more than 300 players.
"The teams in Ferriday and Monterey will still have their teams," Bowlin said. "Dixie Youth allows that. It would be a lot of traveling for someone from Monterey to have to come to Vidalia for practice each day.
The league will have one all-star team.
"We should be strong enough to compete in district with those teams out of Monroe now," Bowlin said. "Before we ran out of pitching. We should be in better shape."
Most of the games will be played in Vidalia, but several games will also be played in Ferriday.
"A lot of the overflow games will be played in Ferriday," Bowlin said.
Bowlin said summer tournament teams have hurt Dixie Youth Baseball the last few years.
"That's taken some kids away," he said. "This is going to be a learning experience for us and it happened so quick. We're all going to work together to make this work for the kids."
