Four Sherbrooke baseball teams have secured tickets to the Provincial Minor Baseball Championships. Sherbrooke Baseball will be represented in the Mosquito A, Mosquito B, Pee A and Bantam A categories under the provinces presented in two weeks in Mauricie and on the south coast of Montreal.
Sherbrooke Mosquito B Blue Jays first achieved a 15-12 victory over Sherbrooke Orioles in the Regionals’ grand final, which took place in late August.
During the regional mosquito A championship in Coaticook, it was the Dodgers’ turn to taste victory, with a score of 14 to 6 against Lac-Mégantic A’s. The Dodgers will thus represent Eastern Townships.
In Peewee A, the Sherbrooke Dodgers also won the final with a final score of 13-8 against Drummondville Olympiques.
Finally, the Sherbrooke Rays were named Grand Bantam A. Class Champions. Rays will therefore take responsibility for Mauricie on 18 September.
Remember last season that the provincial championship was canceled due to the pandemic.
“I’m glad we can offer this competition to our teams,” said Maxime Lamarche, general manager of Baseball Quebec, in a press release. This represents another step towards normality. We are aware that presenting the provincial championship requires some preliminary steps, and that some people would have preferred to play just a regular season, but it is entirely possible for the teams that are eliminated from the championship race to continue playing matches. If they want it to extend the season! I can not wait to see the teams in action during this weekend of activities! “
