Pinellas Park team takes third at Dizzy Dean World Series

Named for the Hall of Fame pitcher, the Dizzy Dean World Series has been an institution of youth baseball for 37 years.

This year's installment took place at Snowden Grove Park in Southaven, Miss., and featured some of the bay area's best teams.

Pinellas Park was one, and Thursday morning, the 12U team captured third place in its division of the weeklong tournament with a 14-2 win over the Bradley County Express of Cleveland, Tenn.

The winner of Bracket C bounced back from a 3-0 loss to Mississippi's Grenada Youth All-Stars with an 11-1 win in the rematch before losing 12-4 to eventual champion North Chilton All-Stars of Alabama in the semifinals.

Thursday, Scott Germack earned the win on the mound while Nate Moeller hit a three-run home run in the fourth that ended the game via the mercy rule.
