   Players on Miami Youth Baseball Association teams show off their rings and awards after playing at Grapeland Heights Park in Miami on Dec. 10. MYBA officials use players’ stats to choose up to six kids from each team to play in the All-Star games. Participating players received a commemorative MYBA All-Star ring.

     Team KSA 6U members played in the All-Star Coach Pitch game. Jorge Medina received the Batting Champion Award for the highest batting average (.897) in the 6U division. Caleb Martinez won the Champion RBI Award for the most runs, 45, and Logan Gil was named Home Run Champion for the most home runs, 9, said Clarisell De Cardenas, a team parent who provided the photos.
