SPRING HILL – It took until the 11th inning for Spring Hill American White and South Sumter to score a run on a soggy Thursday night.
One batter into Friday’s rematch, a winner-take-all championship game in the Dixie Baseball AAA Minors (ages 9-10) All-Stars District 6 Tournament at Anderson Snow Sports Complex, the scoring began and rarely stopped, particularly on the home side.
This time SH American White, having won 2-0 the previous evening to extend the double-elimination tournament, needed only 3 ½ frames to dust South Sumter by mercy rule, 17-4.

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