Diamond Vision Elite, a team from nearby Wellington, Fla., with players from local high schools only and none listed among the nation’s top 500 according to PG Crosschecker, became the first team in the 80-team WWBA tournament to advance to 2-0.

The Elite team opened with a 5-4 win over New York PG USA Dark Green Thursday in Pool G, scoring three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, then defeated Bo Jackson Midwest 4-0 in a Friday morning game as three pitchers, righthanders Brad Gero (Lake Worth, Fla.) and Jesse Russiianoff (Royal Palm Beach, Fla.) and lefthander Josh Scott (Loxahatchee, Fla.), none throwing harder than 85 mph, combined on a six-hitter.
