Athletics are the Bantam Tournament ChampionsUpdated Friday June 28, 2019 by Whitby Minor Baseball Association.
This weekend the weather finally co-operated in order to complete the WMBA annual tournament.
To re-cap... the Athletics took their undefeated regular season record into the tournament and stayed strong. After a rained-out Saturday they were able to get in 2 games on the Sunday, winning 6-2 over the Phillies and 3-2 over the Angels.
That moved the Athletics into the semi-finals where they faced the Mets, who have been playing some great baseball. The Athletics started fast with the bats, putting up 5 runs in the first inning. With solid pitching the Athletics powered through the semi-final game with a 13-2 win moving them into a Championship game against the Pirates.
The visiting Athletics team once again started strong against the Pirates putting up 4 runs in the first inning. Their strong bats along with a solid D was the recipe for success against the Pirates who battled all game long. In the end the Athletics persevered for an 11-4 win and kept their undefeated season streak alive at 12-0!
A big thanks to all the Athletics parents for their support on a great day. And a special thank you to our sponsor Rupel and Marcy From Heathbridge Capital Management for keeping the boys fueled with pizza and drinks. A great day was had by all.
