World Series Champions!
The team, coaches, and the Debs Commissioner (Jerry "Santa" Flowers) with the World Series Championship trophy. The team had just defeated the host, Alexandria Louisiana.
In Dixie World Series play, the State flag from both teams is flown behind the outfield fence. When a team is eliminated - or, in Decatur Debs case when they WIN the CHAMPIONSHIP, the press box asks everyone to focus their attention to the outfield as the team removes their flag and carries it back to home plate. The second picture is of the team carrying Alabama's flag.
Maybe you all have heard?
I want you to also know that these girls, as well as Coaches and fans represented the City of Decatur with much pride. They showed a collective positive attitude toward other teams at all times. The Alexandria Louisiana grounds crew commented on the fact that our group left the stands and dug out in better shape than they were found and the tournament organizers commented on our unmatched show of appreciation for their work as hosts.
