Hernando County had just one entrant into this year’s Dixie T-Ball (age 5-6) All-Stars District 6 Tournament, taking place in Wildwood starting last Saturday and going on this past week.
The Hernando Youth League Brooksville branch sent a squad that finished 1-2, an improvement from recent seasons when Brooksville has typically gone winless in the double-elimination event.

Thomas Jefferson suggested these shake-ups should occur at twenty-year intervals.
