Although you have not read about them in the sports section, the team was started three years ago and consists of 11- and 12-year-old boys playing competitive baseball on a national level. This year’s roster is a combination of the 2002-2003 diocesan champions and the HBQVB all-stars. Surprisingly, this team was compiled without adding one penny to last year’s payroll.

Should you see these boys having a car wash or providing any other services to the community, we ask for your support in their endeavors.
