Aldergrove Minor Baseball teams enjoying great season

Aldergrove Minior Baseball's Bantam, Mosquito and Midget AA Dodgers are enjoying a great season

Bantam AA Dodgers off to Western Canada Baseball Championship

The Aldergrove Bantam AA Dodgers had an awesome summer ball season, finishing with an 11-1 record to earn them top spot in the division.

They had a number of nail-biter games throughout the summer that definitely kept their supportive fans on their toes (especially Mike A.), night in and night out.

During their Provincial run in Burnaby, Aldergrove faced off against Surrey, Vernon, White Rock and Prince George. With a well-earned 4-0 record they faced off against Vancouver Minor in the Semis and were successful in defeating them to again face a very tough Prince George team in the final.

The Dodgers were able to scrape together another gritty win to take home the title of the 2014 Provincial Champions. Hats off to Burnaby for putting on such a great tournament.

The Dodgers are now in preparation mode as they have earned a berth to represent British Columbia in the 2014 Western Canada Baseball Championship in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. The Dodgers will face the top teams from Alberta, Saskatchewan (two teams, as they are hosting) and Manitoba. The tournament runs August 15-17, with Aldergrove’s boys departing out of Vancouver on the 14th. Good luck to our Dodgers.

Mosquito AA Dodgers are 2014 Provincial Champions

The Aldergrove Mosquito AA Dodgers captured the 2014 BC Provincial Championship this weekend at Unwin Park in Newton.

With a 10-0 summer season record, the boys entered Provincials as the favourites. After defeating Surrey, Penticton, Newton and Quesnel on Friday and Saturday, the boys beat North Delta 11-1 in the semis and then faced a very talented Penticton team in the finals.

In what some described as “the best game they’ve ever seen,” the boys defeated Penticton 7-5 in eight innings in a thriller in the hot Newton sun. Congratulations Dodgers on an extremely successful summer season.

Special thanks to Newton Canadian Baseball Association for hosting Provincials and running a great tournament.

Midget AA Dodgers take Silver in Mission

Aldergrove Baseball is very proud of what our Midget AA Dodgers boys accomplished in Mission over the weekend at the Midget AA Provincials.

Leading up to the Provincials the Dodgers finished first in their summer league play with a record of 11-1. The Dodgers had a great mix of first, second and third year players representing them this season.

The Dodgers went into the Provincials in Mission as the one of the favourites. The team finished with a respectable 3-1 record in round robin play leaving them to face the Campbell River Tyees in the semifinals. After a long nine-inning game in the heat the Dodgers were finally able to score the winning run, sending them into the finals against Ladner.

Unfortunately for our boys they just simply ran out of gas. Ladner played a great game and the Dodgers just didn’t have enough in the tank. But we are very proud of what our boys accomplished this summer and look forward to seeing them all back next year with the exception of our third year players who have now graduated from Aldergrove Minor Baseball Association. The third years include Brad Adam, Bret Ducharme, Nolan Easton, Darrien Kristensen, Sam Sedun and Eric Sharman. Who knows, maybe we will see these “old guys” back for AMBA’s Junior Mens program next year?

The Dodgers team and coaching staff would like to say a special thank you to all of our parents, grandparents and friends alike for all of their support.
