Nic Caso came to bat June 21 with a chance to send his Winter Garden Little League 11-Year-Old All-Star team to the Section 5 Tournament — and delivered. Caso’s walk-off, RBI-single gave WGLL a 3-2 win over Dr. Phillips in the District 14 Tournament.

Can you walk us through the at-bat at which you drove in the winning run?
I was kind of nervous, but I knew that if I got the hit, it would send my team to Sectionals, so it would be really good. When I hit the ball, I knew that it was solid contact, and then when I found out it was a hit, I got really excited. … It was kind of crazy — it was fun.

 

How long have you been playing baseball?
Three years. I like pitching, and I started playing, because my brother had played baseball before me, and my dad likes baseball. So I started, and I really liked it.

 

What is the best baseball advice you have received?
If you try your hardest and you trust in your abilities, you’ll do (well). My dad (Diego Caso) told me that.

 

Who is your funniest teammate?
Probably Keston Gomez.
