Baseball in a nutshell
Pee-Wee Tournament: Granby’s crowned champions
The Granby Pee Wee Baseball Tournament was held from Tuesday to Sunday and included 16 teams (8 in the A and 1 in the B) from across Quebec. In addition to Granby, the cities of Gatineau, Quebec, Saint-Jean, Laval-Nord, Victoriaville, Saint-Léonard, Saint-Hubert and Varennes were represented.
At level A, the Laval Jays won 10-1 in the final against the Laurel Victoriaville team on Sunday morning.
In the B, it was the Blue Jays of Saint-Jean (our picture) who won the highest honors, thanks to a very convincing victory of 18-2 against the Reds of Saint-Leonard.
“We had a great tournament week, Mother Nature was kind to us. The teams were satisfied and the young people had a lot of fun, “reports one of the organizers, Jean-François Brouillard. The tournament will be back next year, he says. Nicolas Bourcier
Midget AA Warriors triumph in Ontario
The Richelieu-Yamaska Warriors won the honors of the Kanata, Ontario, tournament in the Midget AA class.
Stéphane Bourgeois players, Étienne Racine, Gilles Galipeau and Martin Vaillancourt won five games in which they took part, including that of the final against the home team in Kanata. Note that the Warriors won after coming back from their last four meetings.
If Mathis Auger seems to be the player who stood above the fray, coaches are quick to say that everyone has got their hands and the dough.
The Warriors will participate in another tournament at the end of the month in Lévis, and they hope to earn their place for the provincial championships.
