Jared Dixon is enjoying an outstanding year on the baseball fields, and it doesn’t appear to be slowing down any.
After a big spring playing for the Del Norte Warriors, the soon-to-be senior has carried that momentum into the American Legion season.
Playing for the Northern Humboldt Giants, Dixon has been a consistent presence in the infield and at the plate.
On Friday, he broke a 1-1 tie with a grand slam in the top of the eighth inning to lead the Giants to a 7-1 win on the opening day at the Reno tournament.

Later in the day, the Giants fell to the Reno Muckdogs 10-0 in five innings and they are now 21-3-1 on the season.
The Giants continue tournament play with two games on Saturday.
