Chiefland BRL All Stars in uncharted waters

-A A +A
By Claude Lewis

The Chiefland 13-15 year-old All Stars are in uncharted waters.

An appearance in the Babe Ruth Southeast Regional in Leesburg will pit the local heroes not only against other top teams from Florida, but the entire South.

We're talking Alabama, the Carolinas, Virginia and Tennessee.

The tournament begins Thursday and will end next Monday or Tuesday.

Chiefland's opening game is at 10 a.m. Friday against the winner of Thursday's Sarasota-West North Carolina game.

"It's a real honor to get to go,"said Chiefland coach Kyle Parnell. "It's a reward for how hard we've worked."

Chiefland won its district and then was second to Tallahassee at the North State Tournament.

"The kids are excited,"Parnell said. "We don't have any experience at this (regional) level. This group won Small State Championship as Majors."

Chiefland has a strong 1-2 starting pitching punch with Brent Slaughter and Jacob Reidy. Parnell isn't sure yet who will go first.

Those two are also two of Chiefland's top hitters.

Marquis Green and Bo Beauchamp at 3-4 will also need to have good tournaments if Chiefland is to do damage.
