TEN YEARS AGO — Timmy Foster strikes out a state-record 16 batters and drives in both of the team’s runs as the Natchez defeats Moss Point 2-0 at the Mississippi Dixie Youth 12-year-old State Tournament.

FIVE YEARS AGO — Even though the Natchez 13-year-old All-Stars lose in the state title game to Wayne County 16-8, they still qualify for the Dixie Boys World Series as the second-place team in the state.
