The 9 Selects team consisting of ’08 and ’09 players had a fantastic post season!
We travelled to Monroe Washington and finished 3rd amongst 8 teams all from the Washington State area. The boys battled hard after losing our first game of the tournament and ending up playing 3 games back to back to back on Sunday! It was a great effort by the entire team whom braved the heat and our pitchers were outstanding.
The team then travelled to North Vancouver for a warm up tournament to get prepared for our 10 day marathon season ending tournament at City Park. We played 5 games in the first 7 days of the round robin finishing second in the division. We dominated the quarter and semi-final only to come up a couple runs short in the final.
Watching these 8 and 9 year kids play at the caliber they played at is amazing. To see where these kids have come from, starting out at as early as 4 years old to see what they can do and accomplish is second to none.
We look forward to representing Langley Baseball at the 10 year old districts and hopefully provincials in 2019!
