August 27, 2017


OTTAWA – Champions were crowned once again at the Baseball Canada Championships, with the better part of medal round games taking place nationwide at the four different tournaments.

Check the recap to see who ended up on the Canadian baseball thrown.

13U National Championship

A tight semifinal began the final rounds of the 13U championship, with Saskatchewan edging Manitoba in the first game of the extra rounds 7-6. They scored three runs in the final two inning of the game to qualify for the gold medal rounds.

Undefeated North York went into the second semifinal and came out with a 6-3 victory, moving out to an early four-run lead and wouldn’t look back. Carson Lumley had another offensive showing in the game, notching three RBI.

North York then cruised to a gold medal win 8-0 in the final game, completing their spotless tournament.

Bronze: Quebec 9, Manitoba 6

Gold: North York (ON1) 8, Saskatchewan 0

15U Ray Carter Cup

A high-scoring semifinal opened up the final rounds in Summerside, with a 11-9 victory for Quebec over Saskatchewan. It was a four-run inning in the fifth that was the difference that began with a Cedric DeGrandpre home run, putting Quebec’s representative into the 15U final.

After New Brunswick blasted Ontario 9-1 in the other semifinal, the Championship was set in a regional battle between Quebec and New Brunswick.

Quebec opened the scoring in the bottom of the first on a Jean-Christophe Masson home run. That was the only runs Quebec would score, and all they needed to secure the gold medal with a 2-1 win in the final.
