Zephyrs to play the Suns

It seems that Jacksonville is trying to bring back the Dixie Series in the form of the Dixie Classic.  At least at the beginning.

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.
