Victoria Red Eagles eye B.C. championship

Mosquito A baseball championship tournament this weekend

The Victoria Red Eagles will go up against the best the province’s has to offer this weekend when they compete at the B.C. Mosquito A baseball championship tournament, near Sidney.

Ten teams will compete in the tournament including six from the Lower Mainland, Kamloops and two other Island squads.

The youth that comprise these teams are all born in 2004 and for most it is their first involvement in competitive baseball.

The Victoria Red Eagles are undefeated against other teams from their division this year and recently returned from the prestigious Valley of Champions tournament in Kelowna, where they went 5-0 to capture the tournament gold medal.

The team of 13 is made up of youth from three local baseball clubs including six youth and two assistant coaches from Carnarvon Ball Club, as well as youth from Triangle Athletic Association and Peninsula Baseball and Softball Association.

The round robin portion of the tournament will see the Red Eagles play at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Aug. 1, and 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Aug. 2.  The top two teams in each pool will advance to the Aug. 3 semifinals. Winners will play at 2:30 p.m. for the championship.

All games are played at Rotary Park, next to Victoria International Airport. The tournament is hosted by Peninsula Baseball and Softball Association.
