SEAYBST Golden Glove awardee Marcel Guzman

Last March 28, 2018, Marcel Guzman received the Golden Glove award for the 18U Seniors baseball division of the Southeast Asian Youth Baseball Softball Tournament (SEAYBST). As reported by Marcel’s mother Nana Guzman on her facebook page, Marcel’s coach said that “…[Marcel] caught almost every ball that went to him, including the one that caused him to dislocate his shoulder for the 3rd out in the first inning of the Seniors Baseball final between Manila Blue and Dubai.”

Marcel Guzman was one of the “closers” at the Grade 10 Closing Ceremony last March 24, 2018. He was also a member of the ILLAM team that emerged as 16U Asia-Pacific baseball champion last June 29, 2017.   

SEABYST is a highly competitive tournament that attracts players from cities throughout Southeast Asia. More than 500 delegates from Bangkok, Doha, Dubai, Jakarta, Manila, Pasig, Pampanga, Perth, and Singapore came to the 2018 games, which were played at The Villages in Global Clark from March 25 to 28, 2018.
