Dominican Republic Update

Today was excursion day out to Island Saona. The baseball team and 2 softball teams and all the parents went on a boat trip to the Island, spent the day in the water, had food and then a catamaran trip back to the main land. It was a beautiful day and lots of fun had by all.

After returning to the mainland, we had the post tournament banquet. Good food and awards from the coaches to the players. Patrick was honored as Most Valuable Player!
