Anthony Ramon celebrated Independence Day Weekend as one of the 18 best baseball players in the 12-U age group. Team USA Baseball announced their roster for the 2022 U-12 Baseball World Cup on July 1 following the week long 12U National Team Trials in North Carolina. Ramon was one of 300 boys that attended the camp starting on June 27, but only 18 could make the team in the end.

Ramon is headed to Taiwan for the World Cup, where he and his teammates will face competitors from 11 other nations, including China, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Korea, and Japan, the defending 12U world champions. Ramon will be sharing the journey on his Instagram for those who want to follow along.
