Very successful tourney and a wonderful international experience. It was a great group of players and young men that represented Canada, the EBLO and their home centres so well. A pleasure to coach them down here. From the competition which was very good against teams from across the world, to the amazing spring training facilities of the Houston Astros/Washington Nationals, to the weather and hospitality it was a memorable experience. Teams exchanged uniform tops today after the Bahamas vs Canada game. Coaches thank you social wrapped up tonight with some story sharing among the countries that participated. Very positive wrap up. Special thanks to Denny Berni for creating this opportunity.
