RIDGE MANOR – Throughout its history, Ridge Manor Dixie Baseball has struggled to overcome the obstacles that plague such a small program.
That’s why even in losing the AAA Majors (age 11-12) All-Stars District 6 Tournament final on Thursday night at Ridge Manor Community Park, 19-0 in three innings against a loaded South Sumter squad, the host team had plenty to celebrate.
As the district runner-up, this Ridge Manor team became the first in league history to earn its way to a state tournament. All previous state appearances came via automatic berths.
