Lexington County has a proud history representing South Carolina in Dixie Youth Baseball World Series. Although many teams from across the county compete, many of our teams have brought the program’s biggest honor back to our county. If the Pineview boys win, they will be the first ever in their age group to do so. In the past, the boys on the winning team have each gotten a World Series ring. They also win a huge trophy and a World Series banner among other things.
