Xander Bogaerts, Jonny Gomes Compete In Slapshot Classic Championship (Video)

The Slapshot Classic final took place on Wednesday in Fort Myers, where Red Sox outfielder Jonny Gomes and shortstop Xander Bogaerts battled for the championship.

After a scoreless first half in which both players failed to score a single point, Gomes’ struggles continued as he was unable to get on the scoreboard. That left Bogaerts needing just one point to claim the championship, and it appeared we were headed for overtime before the 21-year-old infielder converted on his final attempt to claim the slapshot classic title.

For his victory, Bogaerts was presented with a championship belt.

Check out the video above to watch the entire slapshot classic final and championship belt ceremony.
