Queralas, Javi Miranda, Dane Rosi, Raucci, Gargiulo, Jayden Dubanewicz, Breylynn Courtney, and Christian Millikan earned wins. 

“I thought the kids showed great fight and resiliency. They competed hard all week,” Head Coach Todd Fitz-Gerald said. “We really pitched great. Ethan Askin was a warrior, and Gavin Gargiulo and Anthony Quigley sparked our offense. It was a great week of baseball excited for the rest of the summer.

While Devin Fitz-Gerald is usually out on the field with the Pokers, he was invited to play in Cary, North Carolina, with the US National Team Championship. Devin was picked to play for the Canes, helped his team win six games, and had an RBI single in the Championship Game.

“It felt great to win the tournament and to win the medal,” Devin said. “Our team was locked in the whole week, and we did what we needed to do and took care of business and brought home a gold medal. Starting off the first tournament and one of the biggest with a championship is definitely a boost for the rest of this summer.”
