Mat Matejka represented the local nine well, winning the tourney's Home Run Derby. He hit seven HRs in the derby, beating out 22 batters representing other teams. Matejka continued his long-ball hitting by cranking out five home runs in the eight bracket-play games. Gavin Iverson and Aaden Burzette also blasted two home runs each while at the World Series. Mat Matejka, Gavin Iverson and Carson Goodman were selected to the All-Tournament Team. Tri-City's record stands at 32-12-1 in 45 games played.
