Babe Ruth 13-15 All Stars play the waiting game

-A A +A
By Claude Lewis

Ever notice some of the strange scores that come out of bowl games?

A lot can happen when you have more than a month between games.

In a similar vein, the Chiefland 13-15 Babe Ruth All Stars will go nearly a month between games.

Chiefland's finest won the District 6 Tournament on June 21. They won't open State Tournament play until July 17.

It is manager Kyle Parnell and his staff?s task to keep the team sharp during a three-and-a-half week layoff.

"We're practicing and doing some scrimmaging,"Parnell said. "We're trying to schedule some practice games. Alan (Caplin) is trying to get a couple teams from the Ocala area to play against us."

Chiefland rolled through the district tournament, but will find competition much stiffer at the State Tournament.

The event will be played at Godby High in Tallahassee.

"You'll find that the bigger teams will have more 15 year olds," Parnell said. "We've got a mixture. I think we'll be competitive."

Chiefland has some strong pitching in Brent Slaughter, Jacob Reidy and Marquis Green. Parrish Parnell is a solid backstop.
