Parksville's Quality Foods Royals made club history over the long weekend when they became the first local squad to win the BC's Best Baseball Classic in its 17 year history.

Parksville’s Quality Foods Royals captured lightning in the bat over the weekend and made team history by becoming the first local team to win the BC’s Best Baseball Classic in its 17 year history.

The local PBL team was thumped 7-1 in their tournament opener against the Okanagan A’s last Friday, but this is no ordinary Royals’ team, as they answered with four straight well-earned wins to end the drought.

On Sunday the pinstripes hammered out a 4-0 win over the defending tournament Okotoks Dawgs. On Monday they beat the Victoria Mariners 6-4 in the early playoff game, then knocked the hide off the ball and blasted the Nanaimo Pirates 13-4 in the gold medal game.

Check out Friday’s News for a recap of the Royals’ stellar showing.
