Without all the glitz and glamour that came with the opening of the 40th PBA season in Bulacan, a community of ballers opened another liga in the outskirts of Taguig on Sunday.

Brgy. Concepcion is a quiet, coastal town in Puerto Princesa, Palawan. It’s almost two hours away from the main city and home to the Bataks, the smallest indigenous group in the province. It’s so quiet and peaceful in Brgy. Concepcion, one area is called Purok Matahimik. Aside from enjoying the ocean or trekking in the jungle, there’s not much to do around the tiny, unassuming barangay.
But of course, you can play ball.
