Team 2 has a nice mix of talent on the mound and in the lineup. The first position group that jumps out is the trio of middle infielders. Uncommitted 757 seniors Joe Norman and Jose Ruiz is a strong combo up the middle. They both can defend, as well as flash offensive upside. Joe Norman, along with Ruiz, is one of the best remaining uncommitted infielders in the 2024 class. Norman has a solid set of tools that give him the chance to stick in the dirt at the next level. Along with the middle infielders, some intriguing arms like Tommy Blackburn and Ahladas, make Team 2 a tough out. 

Game Schedule:
G1: vs Team 1 (11/4- 4 PM - War Memorial)
G2: vs Team 7 (11/5 - 8:30 AM - War Memorial)
