Three area youth baseball/softball teams claim state titles

Three Tampa Bay youth baseball and softball clubs captured titles over the weekend.

Dixie AAA Minors Baseball: The Spring Hill American 9- to 10-year-olds (6-0) reached the state championship in Arcadia and were chasing a trip to the World Series. Spring Hill, the defending state champion, won its first five games without much struggle. Spring Hill defeated Bartow 6-1 to advance to the title game with Sebring. The North Suncoast squad needed only four innings to top the host team 10-0, advancing to the World Series in Lexington, S.C., on Aug. 9.

Little League Minors Softball: Citrus Park (9-0, 3-0 state) reached the state championship in Tallahassee, upending Windermere 3-1 to hold the trophy high Sunday. The North Tampa squad moves on to the Southeast Region Tournament of Champions in Barboursville, W.Va., on Aug. 1.

Little League Minors Baseball: Keystone (9-0, 3-0) won state with a 10-2 victory over Apopka in the final in Bradenton. The Tampa-area team has been an offensive juggernaut, exploding for 30 runs in only three games at the state tournament and earning a berth into the Southeast Region Tournament of Champions in Greenville, N.C., on Aug. 1. Keystone scored 50 runs in three games while winning the district tournament last month.
