Sometime in the near future the Cordele Dispatch will be publishing a Collage on the History of Sports in Tri County Area. This 4 page event will be a collection of photos and a story on players of football, baseball, basketball, tennis, golf, track, cheerleading, soccer, wrestling and softball dating back to the 1920’s.
