“Unfortunately, the field was very wet in the outfield due to heavy rain the night before and they were unable to play. The team was able to get in about five hours of training which included an inter squad tennis ball match.

“They had a great time and used the training time as a bonding session for the players that originate from Eastern Canada, New Jersey and Atlanta, as well as our own four young Bermudians, Cameron Jeffers, Chare Smith, Antoine Seaman and Sheldon Caesar.
