Jeffrey’s top baseball memory came last summer, “My recent most favorite sports memory was traveling to Myrtle Beach
in the summer of 2015 to play in the Memorial Day Ripken tournament with my CBC travel baseball team. We were the
only 13U team in North Carolina to make it through the weekend to the playoffs.
Although we did not get to the championship, we all had a great time and became
really close friends and teammates.”
