South Burnaby Giants 15U team at Provincials!
Congratulations to the South Burnaby Giants 15U team on a fantastic performance at the 2018 BC Baseball 15U A Provincials!
The team, led by coaches Peter Lei, Darryl Sherwood, Bill Adams and Robert Cust was 13-3 during summer league play, placing 2nd overall in the standings and led their provincial pool with a 3-1 record in round robin play to make it to the semi-finals.
They lost their first game on Thursday Aug 9th to Coquitlam Moody (9-13) after most of them travelled on the 7:45AM ferry to Nanaimo. They caught their 2nd wind and bounced back later that day, to defeat Powell River 8-7 in a tight match with a touch of controversy to end the game. This would be the beginning of a winning streak as the team won their next two games: a 23-4 win against Stuart Channel and a 14-4 win against host Nanaimo.
Unfortunately, they would lose a very close game to North Shore in the semi-finals by one run to end their road to the championship.
Thank you to all the parents /siblings who helped set up tents, brought refreshments and cheered on the team.
Well done, Giants!
