The Youth Baseball Association of Royal Palm Beach 15U Yankees recently competed a stellar season.
The team began the season on Feb. 24 with a 7-2 loss, but then went on an amazing 14-game winning streak to close out the regular season. This was followed by two more wins in the playoffs to finish the season with 16 wins in a row following the opening day loss.
The 15U Yankees took first place for the season and won the playoffs, and along the way had two no hitters and a perfect game.
“We ended up outscoring the opposition 197 runs for us versus 32 for the opposition,” team manager Stephen Acierno said. “The boys and coaches came together as a team, and I thought it would be great if our local residents shared in congratulating the boys for a job well done.”
