Having suffered a brutal walk-off loss in its opening contest and with another game just hours away, the Brooksville Bulldogs were primed for a very short stay at the Dixie Baseball Majors (age 17-19) All-Stars World Series.
But the Bulldogs collected themselves and survived the second half of that doubleheader, then rattled off three more wins to reach the championship game before ultimately finishing as the runner-up in Monroe, La.

Suffice to say, the Brooksville Bulldogs travel team had a pretty good weekend up in Sumter County.
With two entries in the Dixie Baseball Majors (19U) All-Stars State Tournament at Kenny Dixon Sports Complex in Bushnell, one of them a Pre-Majors (17U) squad, the Bulldogs didn’t even have to bother playing a final when they ended up as the last two teams standing.
At the end of the month, the Bulldogs squads will go on their respective World Series, the Majors to Monroe, La. and the Pre-Majors to Guntersville, Ala. Both tournaments start on July 29.

It took Bruce Price multiple attempts to coach a team to a Dixie Baseball World Series. Last weekend, the manager of the Brooksville Bulldogs travel ball squad finally got his chance on the biggest stage.
Price led a group that featured several Hernando County players, though formally representing Polk City, that went 2-2 in the Majors (age 17-19) All-Stars World Series at Ozark, Alabama.

On Tuesday morning, Central High played host to a Dixie Baseball Majors (age 17-19) All-Stars State Tournament championship game that had a distinct local flavor.
Both the Hernando Youth League crew and Polk City featured a heavy amount of Hernando County high school players, with the latter pulling out a 13-4 victory.
The Polk City name was merely a financial technicality. The roster was mostly comprised of players from Hernando and Pasco counties, and helmed by long-time HYL coach Bruce Price.
