PENITAS – The Tejanos baseball, a local 08U youth baseball team, dared to dream, work hard, and their efforts paid off when they took second place out of 14 teams in the 8-year-old division at the Disney International Salute to Baseball tournament in July.
Over 150 other teams travelled from across the U.S., Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Aruba, Panama and Venezuela to participate in the tournament at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
The Tejanos are a tournament team which gives them the opportunity to play ball year round across South Texas. This allows them to not be confined by the shorter season play of local leagues and programs sponsored through city parks and recreation departments.
