Spring Hill named Dixie 15-U co-champ


Published:

SPRING HILL - Following the controversial ending to the Dixie Boys Baseball 15-Under State Tournament on Sunday, both Winter Haven and Spring Hill have been named co-champions of the inaugural event held at Springstead High.

Winter Haven was initially declared the winner based on a coin flip after heavy rain made the field unplayable.

According to Spring Hill Dixie Baseball president Joe Abbadessa, Dixie officials have admitted that was not proper procedure and on Wednesday decided to split the state title.

Regardless, both teams had already garnered a berth into the June 20 Dixie Regional Tournament in Ozark, Ala.
