Jason Bello (2024, Fort Myers, Fla.) got his WWBA week off to a hot start when he went 2-for-2 with a home run and a triple, driving in three runs and scoring two. The USF commit twice drove the baseball to the big part of the yard seeing it deep and letting the strength in his hands do the damage at the point of contact. His home run in his first at-bat came to right-center field and he would follow that up with a triple to straight-away center field, driving the ball high off the extended fencing.
