This past weekend in Fort Myers, Florida, North East Baseball put together a team of players from 15 different states as well as Puerto Rico to compete in the Perfect Game 18u WWBA Memorial Day East Classic.

Advancing to the Quarterfinals NEB was matched up with Elite Squad Prime out of Miami, FL.
