The 17U team picked up a 4-0 win behind an outstanding pitching performance by Geraldo Velazquez who also threw a two-hit shutout while collecting seven strikeouts.

The 15U team has a 2-3 record, while the 17U team is 3-2. They have today off before hitting the soil once again tomorrow.

Keep up the great work, guys! Keep swinging!
