The RP Blu Boys continued to dominate their opponents in the ongoing Makassar Open International Men and Women Softball Tournament at Makassar, Indonesia. The team has already posted five wins in six games.

In opening their campaign, the RP Blu Boys escaped Bedford (Australia), 10-9, before losing to New Zealand, 1-5. The Philippine national men’s softball team quickly bounced back, shutting out Piccadilly (New Zealand), 3-0, Lakidende (Malaysia), 1-0, and Pirates (Indonesia), 10-0, before holding off Bedford, 6-3.

“This is another testament to the talent of Filipinos when it comes to Softball. The RP Blu Boys is definitely a force to reckon with in the international scene.
