Mission Twins win silver at BCs

Host squad falls in final game of baseball provincials.

Players on the Mission Twins AA Peewee baseball squad can hold their heads high, despite falling in the provincial finals.

The host Twins won the silver medal after losing 11-7 to Chilliwack in the final of the Provincial Peewee AA Baseball Championships held in Mission on the weekend.

The local boys, who earned a 3-1 record in round-robin play and defeated Duncan 4-2 in the semi-final,  ran out of steam, but not determination, in the championship.

The locals fell behind 10-0 against Chilliwack early in the game, but battled back to narrow the gap to 10-7, before eventually losing.

“What was awesome is that this is Mission’s first time having a double A team in years and for them to come in second in the provincials is fantastic,” said team manager Sheri Curley.

The event featured 10 teams from across the province including Mission, Chilliwack, Kelowna, Ladner, Campbell River, Oceanside, Duncan, Coquitlam/Port Moody, Prince George and Ridge Meadows.

Two of the Twins players are moving on to represent the province.

Yosuke Fujie and Russell Curley have been asked to play with Team BC (the winning Chilliwack squad) down in Kennewick, Washington, July 31 to August 2 at the 13 and under Battle for the Bats tournament.
