Cayce, SC - The Cayce Historical Museum has released the details and schedule of events for the first day of a new special exhibit. Enthusiasm is building as the community looks forward to the 1964 Cayce Dixie Youth World Series boys getting back together again!
The boys of summer have become men, now in their 60s. What hair they have has long turned gray, but none of that matters. When the conversation turns to that phenomenal season, the age fades and they are boys again, playing on their own field of dreams. The memories are just as fresh as the turf was on the championship diamond when the Cayce team took the field in 1964.
The event and exhibition will be held at the Cayce Historical Museum. That’s located at 1800 12th Street beside the Cayce Municipal Complex. What follows is the schedule of the special program prior to the opening of the museum exhibit. The exhibit's unveiling is slated to be held on Friday, August 16th at 3:00 p.m. What follows is the itinerary.
