Summer league players are practicing and playing on all-star teams this week, getting ready for upcoming Dixie Baseball (and softball) tournaments, advancing through the ranks of the city, district and state tournaments in hopes of making it to the World Series.

Former players, who are old enough to remember the early years of Dixie Baseball, recall the Eastern League group that dominated the city’s baseball landscape in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

LAMP’s magical run through the Class 4A playoff bracket came to a crashing halt at the hands of the defending state champions as the Golden Tigers ran out of gas and out of pitching on Friday afternoon at Paterson Field.

After battling UMS-Wright evenly through the first two games of the best-of-three semifinal series, the Tigers surrendered 11 unearned runs in an 18-0 loss to the Bulldogs that ended the season but did little to dampen their status as the region’s best team by reaching the semifinal round.

So when the Gators played a third game in the Alabama Independent School Association Class AAA state baseball tournament at Paterson Field, it was Carter who took center stage, earning most valuable player honors by pitching a three-hitter and helping the Gators to a 10-0 win over Pike Liberal Arts on Thursday afternoon.
