The Sarasota Cal Ripken 2011 8U Rookie “A” Team — Sarasota Sluggers — has placed fifth in the state of Florida.
Recently, the team traveled to Ocala to qualify for the district. After a three-game win they became the district champions and qualified for the state tournament, in Palm Beach Gardens. Four teams qualified to move on to the Southeast Regional, in Tennessee. The Sarasota Sluggers lost 3-0 in the semi-final game, ranking them fifth in the state — one game shy of making it to Tennessee.
