Team Philippines represented by Northern Mindanao’s elementary baseball team today rallied past Hong Kong, 8-7, to bag the bronze medal in the 2017 Asia Pacific Regional Little League Baseball Championship (Intermediate Division) held at Hwaseong Dream Park in Hwaseong, Korea.

Still reeling from a 2-12 loss to powerhouse Japan in the semifinal game the other day, the young little leaguers from Misamis Occidental and reinforced by players from Cagayan de Oro, Iligan and Bukidnon started slow and allowed 6 runs by Hong Kong right in the first inning. As shown in the scoreboard below, they slowly cut the lead and exploded with 5 runs in the last two innings for the come-from-behind win.

They will now return home with bronze medals around their necks.
