Reds playing good ball
With the regular season finished for Oceanside Minor Baseball, the rep season is well under way and the Oceanside Pee Wee Reds are looking good so far.
The provincials are a month away but that hasn’t stopped the Pee Wee Reds from showing they’re the team to beat.
With a number of exhibition games against the same teams they’re going to have to beat to advance off Island to provincials, the Reds have been proving they’ll be tough to beat come the zone championships.
“This is a group of kids who’ve been practicing real hard and played hard too,” head coach Andy McDonald said. “We’ve got a pretty successful record so far and beaten some of the teams we’ll be seeing through the zones in Port Alberni, Comox and Campbell River to name a few.”
With a good crop of players to choose from, the pee wee division ranges in age from 11 to 13 and there were 48 registered players. They got the chance to play a good number of games during the season and got to know some of their teammates well before the rep season began.
Team members hoping to make it to provincials in Port Coquitlam July 31-Aug. 3 are Jaxon Ackerman, Sam Atagi, Ty Barker, Ben Chomolok, Justin Geiger, Nolan Macdonald, Brandon Nicoll, Trevor Nicoll, Owen Slocum, Brandon Snyder, Sean Spence, Freeman Waechter and Scotty Williams.
