“We’re going to win the state (title),” Chase Rose said calmly leaning against the black light pole on the corner of Main Street and Broadway while he and a handful of teammates were soliciting for donations downtown to take them to the state tournament next weekend.

And he should be this confident. The Bartow Dixie Youth baseball team 10 and Under won the district tournament in a convincing fashion. None of the five games they played lasted more than four innings as they outscored their opponents 74-3 and posted three shutouts. In the finals, they topped East Lakeland 11-1. Last year when Bartow hosted the Dixie World Series this team lost in the finals to South Carolina 4-1 becoming only the second host team to make it to the finals in the Dixie World Series history.
