I have been overly impressed with the class, dignity, sportsmanship and athleticism that was displayed by the Lancaster Dixie Baseball 9-10 year old all-star team in the state playoffs in Hartsville.

These boys are representing our town, families and themselves in a dignified, superb fashion, while not losing a game and are on their way to compete in the World Series in LaGrange, Ga.

Congratulations to each of you young men for your hard work and fine representation of Lancaster County.

Kudos, as well, to all the coaches for giving of your time and efforts to ensure this team and community have a chance to experience a state championship victory.

It has been a pleasure to watch the past few games, and I hope to get to see a few more victories en route to the 2008 state title.

Good luck.
