Jackson Maxey tips his cap after being introduced to the crowd gathered at the SportsPlex on Saturday morning for the opening-day ceremony of the Laurel-Jones Dixie Youth Baseball season. Hundreds of players on teams in the 5-6-year-olds’ age division to the 11-12-year-olds’ division were introduced as hundreds of people gathered around for the festivities and to cheer them on before the first games were played.
