A loud “Smack!” echoed throughout Terry Stroemer Field in Lake Butler, clearly audible even as dozens of Chiefland baseball fans cheered and clapped wildly.
Like a gavel after a court proceeding, the sound of assistant coach Chad Brock high-fiving pitcher Tim Reidy signaled an end to Baldwin’s chances as Chiefland (15-7) used the momentum of the inning to pull away for a 12-2, mercy-rule victory in the District 7-1A Championship game.
“When the momentum started changing with that inning it got us all to settle down and we were able to finish out with a great game,” Brock said.
Brock pointed out that this was his sixth district title with coach Kyle Parnell, including three as an assistant and three as a player. The CHS Indians will host Taylor Pierson in the regional semifinals at 7 p.m. on May 7. A win advances them to the Elite Eight where they’ll play the Baldwin/The Villages winner on Friday.
