Do any teams in Southeast Louisiana even play little league or is it still Dixie Youth?
It varies. They have Dixie, Pony, Cal Rypken, LL and even USSSA has a program where rec leagues affiliate with them.
I think Dixie is probably closest to LL. I think it started back years ago as a reaction to LL going with racial integration of teams. Not sure why Pony started. (I think Pony and Cal Rypken are two different age groups of the same organization maybe).
Then there are local municipal rec leagues which may be affiliated with one of these organizations for All Star purposes. I know our local league would change. Some years it was Dixie. Some years it was Pony and some years it was USSSA.
