The 11-12s will play for the district championship at 6:30 p.m. July 12, on Field 3 at Mike E. Sansone Park.A 10-2 victory over Haines City Tuesday night put them there, with Austin Eldridge getting the start on the mound and T.J. Gaynor coming in for relief in the fourth.
Tate Whatley had a big game in the semifinals, hitting two two-run blasts to go along with an RBI double. Will Johnson also delivered a two-run homer Tuesday.
The win came after a 19-0 win over Lake Wales July 6 and a 24-0 win over Polk City July 8.
The 11-12 All-Stars return nine players from last year’s 10-11 team that won the district, section and state titles before losing in pool play in the Southeast regional tournament.
