Over the summer, Coral Shores High School varsity baseball players Dillon Walters and Zakerie Filpes tried out for the USA baseball team.

Walters, a junior, looked like he had an amazing time at USA tryouts at Duke University, North Carolina, and Florida Christian School.  

He said, “I was surprised at first, but glad to compete with some of the best [baseball players] in the country.”

This was Walters’ first time trying out for the USA baseball team and same for Filpes. They played on The South Florida NTI’s (National Team Identification Series) 16u.

Filpes, a sophomore, was most impressed by  “Being able to play where the Blue Devils [Duke University]. The field was amazing, it was made out of AstroTurf which made it less difficult such as no bad hops because the field was flat.

Filpes took advantage of the field by hitting a double right down the left field line.

Walters, tried out middle infielder [shortstop] and third base. For Filpes, he had tried out for catcher, second base, and shortstop.
