Remollo boys set Philippine baseball record

A Philippine baseball record was set last June 12, Independence day, when 14 year-old Felipe Claudio "Dio" Remollo, became the youngest baseball player to hit a homerun in a regulation game at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila.
The historic Rizal Stadium hosts the same field where baseball greats like Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig made their respective homeruns when they played in the Philippines in the 1950's.
Dio is the son of former Dumaguete mayor Felipe Antonio and Cristine Remollo.
Picture shows Dio being awarded the symbolic homerun ball by head umpire Ronaldo Siacor.
Meanwhile, Dio's elder brother Pelos Remollo, was recently awarded baseball's Most Valuable Player in Japan.
Japan is home of baseball talents who have advanced to play in major leagues in the United States.
