The Bago City Junior League Softball team paid a courtesy visit to the members of the Senate, August 16.

Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri hailed the Little League Philippines Inc. (Little League) for capturing the crown at the 2023 Junior League Softball World Series held in Kirkland, Washington, USA early this month.

Zubiri, in his Senate Resolution No. 723, said the Little League deserved praise, recognition and commendation for bringing pride and inspiration to the Filipino people and for showing to the world the unrelenting spirit of Filipino.

"We are immensely proud of our girls for not only representing Asia Pacific and the Philippines but also Negros Occidental as well. They remain undefeated in their whole junior league run," he said.

The Negrense senator added that "we salute the whole team for putting Negros Occidental back on top of the softball scene."

The team was joined by Bago City Councilors Ma. Josefa Matti, Jake Patrick Torres, Victor Michael Javellana and Ma. Femmy Alvarez-Martir and SK Federation President Carl Benedict Baylon. (PR)
