The Pacific Coast League's New Orleans Zephyrs and the Southern League's Jacksonville Suns will play a one-time exhibition game in the inaugural Dixie Classic, presented by Dixie Egg Company, it was announced Monday.
The exhibition will take place on Thursday, April 2, at 7:05 p.m. at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville. Both teams are in their first season as an affiliate of the National League's Florida Marlins.
"For years I've tried to come up with a plan for a postseason Dixie Series like the one they had when I was a kid," Suns President Peter Bragan, Jr. said. "The opportunity to have New Orleans against Jacksonville is going to be a wonderful start."
So I guess if find yourself in Jacksonville on April 2, head on out to the park. It should be entertaining.
