The highest point of their week was scoring 30 runs in a game in the Florida heat while the lowest point was getting dropped into the losers bracket.
Clint Haveron won the tournament MVP while Matt Newbold won the Offensive Tournament MVP. Abra had 8 players on the All-Tournament Team. Abra had an overall record of 34-7 for the year heading into the World Series but kept their eye on the prize and won their first World Tournament.
