A great opening weekend!
Our first weekend of baseball was a huge success! Congratulations to our Bantams and PeeWees for their first taste of competition this year. They played very well against teams on Saturday from OK Falls and Penticton. A huge thank you to all of our volunteer coaches, managers, umpires and parents for making this experience terrific for the kids. The smiles were evident all over the ballpark. Comments from our visiting teams were, “what a great place to play baseball!”
We agree! It was so great to hear the sounds of baseball in our community again!
On Sunday our Mosquito teams hosted the first-ever Black Widow Jamboree. We had 6 visiting teams from Penticton, Princeton and OK Falls here to participate in a one-day doubleheader. Our visiting teams from Penticton shared the comments, “we’ve been doing baseball tournaments for years, but have never done anything like this. Thank you!”
Our Mosquito’s had a chance to play 2 games each, compete in 3 skills events and each as many hot dogs as they could squeeze in! It was a great day, and the weather got even better as the day progressed. We even had neighbours come down after the tournament and say how great it was to see the field being used by the kids.
A huge thank you to our parent volunteers would helped us scramble up hot dogs on a moment’s notice, spot and mark for the events as well as coach and manage a great day of baseball!
Our PeeWee team competed on Sunday in Princeton and found their first win of the season! Congratulations to Coach Mike and his squad of players. Led by terrific pitching by Armaan Deol, Dillon Wiens, and Linden Gervais the team stood tall against a formidable challenge by Princeton. The pitching staff was held together under a terrific effort by Grady Pearson as catcher. The kids showed true grit holding off the Princeton club for an 11-6 final score.
Congratulations to the entire PeeWee team and their coaches for a terrific job. You’ve done everyone proud!
We’ve got another busy week of baseball coming up this week, remember to check our OMBA CALENDAR for the most up-to-date practice and game schedules.
Have a terrific week everyone!
