Spring 2004 Baseball Season SummaryThe Blacksburg Baseball Association provided for regular season play in three age divisions during the Spring 2004 season, which began in April and went through June. The original 11-12 year-old division finished its third Spring season, fielding 4 teams. The 9-10 year-old division completed its second season, fielding 3 teams. The newly formed coach-pitch division for 7-8 year-olds, fielded 2 teams. The Blacksburg teams competed against each other, and against teams from Christiansburg, Auburn, Shawsville, and Radford.
After the regular season, the 9-10 and 11-12 divisions fielded All-Star teams. The 9-10 All-Star team reached the semifinals in the District 3 Dixie Youth Baseball AAA Tournament held in Radford, Virginia, where it was eliminated by the tournament winning Patrick County team. Patrick County also won the Virginia State Tournament and represented the state in the 2004 Dixie World Series.
The 11-12 All-Star team won the District 3 Dixie Youth Baseball Majors Tournament, beating Patrick County in the finals. In the Virginia State Tournament, they reached the semi-finals by beating South Boston and Vinton before being eliminated by Dinwiddie. The 11-12 team was the recipient of the Dixie Sportsmanship Trophy. The tournament was held in South Boston, VA.
The BBA also fielded two Middle School teams in the spring (a 6th-7th grade team and an 8th grade team) with the support of Blacksburg's Varsity Coach, Jim Shockley.
