9 local baseball players from various East County high schools have traveled to Italy to represent USA in an International Baseball Tournament. The boys range from 14-16 years old & are accompanied by their coach Jeff Barry.
They left San Diego on Tuesday 7/3 for Venice, Italy. From there they took a train to Florence, were they are now & just finished the first day of the tournament. They played two games & won both....21-0 & 21-2!! Not only will they be participating in a four day tournament, they'll be traveling to Rome & Tuscany. Enjoying the food, train & boat rides, city walks, visiting the Vatican, Coliseum, the Trevli Fountain, the Pantheon & a Academia Museum.
After 8 days, 7 nights & memories that'll last a lifetime, they'll begin their long journey home!!
What an amazing "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunity for these boys, we are all so proud of you!!
GO TEAM USA!!
