Team BC placed sixth in the round robin, advancing them to the finals. With some tough competition the team placed seventh in the finals. Live broadcast was offered for the friends, family and fans at home.

Romeo played all games, rotating positions between pitcher, catcher and field. He was number one on the batting average for the first couple of days.

It was a great experience, he said. Romeo was proud to represent Clearwater during the event. Conversations led to many of the coaches remembering past players from Clearwater.
