2022 DIXIE SOFTBALL WORLD SERIES SPORTSMANSHIP AWARDS

In 1996, the DSI Board of Directors declared that all Dixie Softball World Series Sportsmanship Awards would bare the name of James E. "Obie" Evans, founder of Dixie Girls Softball later know as Dixie SoftbalI, Inc. Following the untimely  death of a 2009 Dixie Angels World Series Angels player, Obie Evans asked that, beginning with the 2010 Angels World Series, the player's name appear along side of his name on the Angels World Series Sportsmanship Award. It was decided that down the line the names of players, deemed under extra special situations, be honored on future World Series Sportsmanship Awards.
