Jim Whittington and Sportsman of the Year
I met Jim Whittington while managing teams in Dilworth, NC. We dedicated our field to him (see NC pin on Pins Page) as he was instrumental in making the league flourish. Mr. Whittington, Chairman of the Board of Directors with LL, passed away in 1999. Thanks for everything Jim. You will not be forgotten.
Parade of Champions!!
The Parade of Champions occurs at both opening and closing ceremonies. The teams are presented in all their glory, carrying individual team banners, doffing their caps to the crowd. "Its a Small World After All!" A very proud moment for a great team...the undefeated 1988 Dilworth Orioles! Home
I took this picture just after the boy rounding second had hit the longest home run in World Series history. The ball was caught on the hill to the left of the scoreboard (see box). Click the pic to get a close-up of the image in the box - a fan holds up the ball where it was caught!
