Major League Lacrosse Bayhawks' Dixon retires after eight years Veteran midfielder and All-Pro Kyle Dixon has announced that he is retiring from Major League Lacrosse. Dixon spent eight seasons in MLL, all with the Bayhawks. He played high school lacrosse for Archbishop Spalding and college lacrosse at Virginia, where he was a first-team All-American his senior season and won national championships in 2003 and 2006. Dixon was selected second overall in the 2006 MLL college draft by the then-Baltimore Bayhawks.

Major League Lacrosse is planning on starting the 2015 season earlier than in the past, with April 11 as the proposed start date, two weeks earlier than the 2014 season began. The final regular-season game in the National Lacrosse League is set for May 2, meaning there will be more overlap between MLL and NLL seasons if MLL starts earlier. The MLL also is experimenting with ways to make the ball more visible on TV, including changing the color or adding a stripe, after trying a smooth, orange ball last season.

The Chesapeake Bayhawks upset the top-seeded Boston Cannons in the 2010 Major League Lacrosse semifinals and went on to win the championship.

CHESTER, Pa. -- After a physically and emotionally draining 13-12 victory over the Hamilton Nationals in Saturday's semifinal of the Major League Lacrosse playoffs at PPL Park, the Chesapeake Bayhawks probably won't have to do much studying on their last opponent of the 2013 season. That's because the No. 2 seed and reigning league champion tangled with the No. 4 seed Charlotte Hounds on Aug. 10, emerging with a 16-14 decision at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis.

The Chesapeake Bayhawks hosted three other Major League Lacrosse teams at a scrimmage day Saturday at Severn. The Charlotte Hounds, Denver Outlaws and Florida Launch traveled to the Severna Park private school for one last test before next weekend's season openers. Each team played two three-quarter games. Chesapeake coach Dave Cottle had mixed feelings after watching the Bayhawks defeat Florida, 11-5, and lose to Denver, 8-5. "Right now, I think we are an average team. I didn't see anything out there today that made me think we're a good team at this point, but we'll keep working to get there," Cottle said.

Giving back to the community is nearly as important to Chesapeake Bayhawks owner and coach Brendan Kelly as defending the 2010 Major League Lacrosse championship. Kelly has taken a community-first approach in the eight months since he purchased the team, keeping Bayhawks players and staff busy this offseason volunteering, donating items for auction and sponsoring area charity events. "I'm a big proponent of giving back to the community," said Kelly, who also serves as president of Annapolis-based staffing firm Smartlink LLC. "We want to give back every weekend, whether it's at homeless shelters, helping the military — whatever it is, we want to make sure we're giving back.

After leading the Johns Hopkins University to a national title in lacrosse, Kyle Harrison figured he might make a living off the sport for three years. Eight years later, lacrosse continues to pay his bills. "There was no real path for a lacrosse player to go out and continue doing that for a living," Harrison said. "Candidly, that felt like an abrupt end to something I'd dedicated so much time to. It didn't feel fair. " After several years in the sport's most established pro league, Major League Lacrosse, Harrison joined some other entrepreneurial lacrosse players to forge their own path in Southern California.

At Virginia, Kyle Dixon was more of a playmaker than a scorer. After the Bayhawks drafted him in 2006, the midfielder altered his game, recording more goals than assists. In 2013, his eighth season in Major League Lacrosse, Dixon has gone back to his college roots. Although he isn't scoring as many goals, the Millersville native and 2002 Archbishop Spalding graduate has already set a professional career high in assists this season. "It's definitely been a more assist-heavy season for me," Dixon said.
