Ladysmith 49ers AAA Mosquitos win silver at provincials

The Ladysmith 49ers AAA Mosquito team took silver at the 2017 BC Minor Baseball Provincial Championships over the weekend in Campbell River.

“These boys played their hearts out this weekend, they pushed themselves hard and came together as a team to win silver,” said Sharlene MacDonald, Mosquito coordinator for the Ladysmith Baseball Association.

At the opening ceremony, the boys stood out by winning two of the five skills competition for Round the Horn and Base Running.

The 49ers then went on to win three of the four qualifying games on Friday and Saturday putting them in second place for the semi-final game.

On Sunday, they won 4-3 in the semis putting them tied with Campbell River to play for first and second place.

“It was a great weekend for Vancouver Island baseball,” MacDonald said. “The top two teams playing for first and second place were Campbell River and Ladysmith beating out six teams from Vancouver and two from the Interior.”
