Nine and 10-year-old players from the Triangle Athletic Association will see their first tournament baseball action of the season over the long weekend.
The six Mosquito division teams from Triangle’s B.C. Baseball organization will be joined by teams from Peninsula, Carnarvon and Nanaimo, as well as one from Port Coquitlam, on the three Juan de Fuca fields at West Shore Parks and Recreation.
The event kicks off with a fun skills competition this Friday night (May 19), where players will have a chance to test their hitting, throwing and running abilities in a fun-based environment.
Tournament play gets underway Saturday morning, with two pools of five teams each contesting four round-robin games ahead of the playoff round.
The semifinals happen at 9 a.m. Monday, with the bronze and gold medal games set to start at noon that day.
“It’s going to be awesome,” said tournament director Crystal Burkard. “It’ll be exciting and fun for the kids, and it’s the perfect location.”
