Though not making it to the top of the 2019 BFA Asian Championship, the Philippine Men’s National Baseball Team still had much to celebrate.
Two of its players were named as part of Asia’s best in their respective positions, while another one topped a statistical category.
Incoming La Salle super senior Diego Lozano and national team veteran Jennald Pareja were named as the best first and second baseman, respectively.
On the other hand, Adamson University product Erwin Bosito had the most stolen bases in the tournament. The speedster from Los Banos, Laguna had eight in five games.
With the three leading the charge, the Philippines ended the tournament at fifth place.
The nationals ended up tied with South Korea and China to end Group B of the continental meet.
The Philippines lost the right to advance to the Super Round, though, as it was behind in the team’s quality balance.
The Philippines made sure to sweep the consolation round, blasting Hong Kong and Sri Lanka.
