Team Mizuno, a 13-year-old baseball team represented Acadiana well at Disney World's International Salute to Baseball World Series, and will be bringing home a World Series trophy.
The week-long tournament culminated Saturday, July 12, with the Team Mizuno's world championship victory.
Televised on ESPN3, Team Mizuno coaches Todd MacFarlane and Joe Gonzalez led the boys to a semi-final victory against Puerto Rico, 3-0 to secure a berth in the championship game this past weekend against another Louisiana team called the Northshore Prospects. Mizuno defeated Northshore 10-4 to win the championship among the approximately 40 participating teams from the United States and abroad.
