South Florida Hitmen Head To Elite 32

The 12U South Florida Hitmen baseball team from Royal Palm Beach have earned a bid to the 2015 USSSA Wilson Demarini Elite 32 World Series. At a recent tournament in Vero Beach, the Hitmen had a tournament best 5-1 record at the USSSA Super NIT, which was enough to qualify the team for the Elite 32 event. The top 32 Elite teams in the country will compete July 25 to Aug. 2 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney World for the title of “2015 Elite World Series Champion.” The top four teams will move on to play in the 2015 National Youth Championships in August.
