TB Financial 75+ won the #1 seed in pool play in Plant City, FL, on Jan. 22 – 24 and went on to win the Division Championship with a 4-1 record. TB Financial played Hamel Builders in a double elimination game on Wednesday afternoon in what turned out to be the Championship game due to the inclement weather on Thursday.

TB Financial Group scored 5 runs in the 5th inning while shutting down Hamel Builders and went on to score 10 runs in the open 6th inning to win the Division Championship 29-16.
