Langley 9-10 team takes Fraser Valley championship

Next up, the provincials in Victoria

The Langley Baseball 9-10 District 3 – Fraser Valley Little League team defeated perennial powerhouse Whalley in the final game of the round-robin series Sunday at City Park, forcing an end to the game under the mercy rule after just four innings after Langley was leading 12-2.

“That was the only mercy in the tournament,” said team manager Cornell Pich.

District 3 has a reputation for being tough and competitive, and it’s been several years since a Langley team has made it to the top.

In fact, Langley was undefeated throughout the round-robin series.

Pich said no single Langley player can take credit for the win.

“We have no superstars,” Pich said.

“It’s truly a team effort. It’s a complete team from top to bottom.”

Next up for Langley is the week-long provincial 9/10s championships in Victoria that start Saturday.
