The young baseball team from Magsaysay, Misamis Oriental reinforced by some players from Alubijid town finished 3rd in the recent 2019 Asia Pacific & Middle East Little League Baseball Regional Tournament (Intermediate Division) held last month at Hwaseong, South Korea.

The Palaro champions nipped Northern Marianas 5-1 in its first game in the preliminaries but lost to Japan 3-11 in its second game. They advanced to the crossover semifinals after winning by default over Pakistan which failed to arrive due to problems with travel documents. However, they bowed to Korea 0-16 in the semifinals but nevertheless managed to settle for the podium finish after beating China 6-1.
