After five days, 19 flags and 36 games, the Babe Ruth league’s State of Florida Cal Ripkin division T-Ball Championship finished on Sat. June 17. The events at Chiefland’s Strickland Park saw four bracket  winners crowned at the state level. Attention now turns back to Chiefland and the Southeast Regional T-ball World Series July 5.
Chiefland Area Athletic Association president Wayne Weatherford estimated between 2,500-3,000 people showed up over the course of the weekend. With teams coming from all over north-central Florida, many stayed at area hotels and patronized local businesses. Weatherford said he was impressed with the turnout and crowd, noting there were no major disturbances and no one had to be removed from the park.  
“Chiefland does a great job getting things ready to go,” Babe Ruth State T-ball director Wayne Stutzman said.
