The Roo Baseball 10-U team recently traveled to Broken Arrow, Okla. after earning the chance to compete in the USSSA 10-U AA Boys World Series tournament. At the conclusion of tournament pool play, the Roos earned a No.1 overall seed and began bracket play which produced 28 games among 13 teams in a double elimination format.
