Big League World Series action now under way

The Big League World Series began for the 12th time in Easley Tuesday night with a home run derby and concert at Easley’s J.B. “Red” Owens Complex. Above, a banner for this year’s winner hangs on the back of the bleachers at the Owens Complex, just underneath one from 2007, the last year the S.C. District 1 Host team won the tournament. For more about this year’s tournament, including a list of the teams District 1 must go through to get back in the winners’ circle and a schedule of each game, turn to page 1B.
