Streams Region 3 Dixie Majors Operations Director
Michael Streams, DeQuincy, has been named as the Regional 3 Dixie Majors Operations Director. Streams’ territory will cover from the Texas state line to Lafayette and from Cameron to Toledo Bend. Duties cover the gamut from making sure teams complete paperwork necessary and comply with rules and deadlines to running regional and state tournaments.
Jason Parker, DeQuincy, has been elected as state director for the last five, two-year terms. This year marks his 11th year in that position. He appointed Streams.
It’s not the first time he “picked” Streams. When Streams was six years old, Parker drafted him for the T-Ball Golds, “mainly because I was a big kid,” Streams said. Streams was 5’4 and it was his first time to play ball.
“Little did Jason know that I could not throw a baseball.” He learned how to throw a ball and picked up some other skills along the way. Now, his goal is to give back some of the good that was instilled in him by the coaches that he’s had through the years. He’s in some of the best venues to do that. Streams is the baseball coach at Singer High School, oversees the in-school suspension there and is the youth minister at New Hope Baptist Church in DeQuincy.
Parker teaches at Sowela Technical Institute. Parker and Streams have umpired and coached together through the years, garnering three national Dixie franchise championships.
