FHSAA does away with regional baseball series

The Florida High School Athletic Association voted to discontinue its regional championship baseball series during Monday's meeting in Gainesville.
The association experimented with the series, which used a best two-of-three format to crown a regional champion, the last two springs.
"During the two-year trial, we received feedback from some of the participating schools that the experiment, while good for competition. was not being supported by spectator attendance," said FHSAA executive director Roger Dearing. "The format also created extended travel for schools, which became a budget concern."
Local schools Bradenton Christian, Cardinal Mooney and Out-of-Door Academy appeared in the series.
The regional championship will again be decided in one game.
