View Royal hosting fastball nats

Under-14 girls tournament will attract the best in the country

Parks in View Royal and Saanich will host some of the top up-and-coming young fastball players in the country this August.

The Victoria Fastball Club, home of the Victoria Devils rep teams, has won the bid to stage the 2015 U14 Girls Canadian Fastpitch Championships. Up to 24 teams from around the country are expected to compete for the title Aug. 6 to 9 at Helmcken-Centennial Park in View Royal and Hyacinth Park in Saanich.

The Devils 2001 and 2002 (birth years) teams will play in the event, after spending the spring and summer competing in high-level tournaments around the Pacific Northwest including the Island and Lower Mainland.

The club is currently looking for sponsors to help defray the cost of putting on this four-day tournament. For more information, contact Ruth Bourassa at u14nationals@gmail.com or Rhonda Gluns at rhondagluns@shaw.ca.
