The Oceanside Pee Wee Reds baseball team is headed to the provincials in Mission this weekend for the third straight year, having moved up an age group to pee wee.
For a team that’s been together for a few years, this marks the third straight occasion the group has found themselves in the provincials. They’ll look to improve upon their third place finish at the Islands in Duncan.
“We’re a smaller, younger team,” head coach Rob McGorman said. “We’re younger compared to the rest of the pee wee teams we play, being that it’s our first season as a team here. But it’s been a lot of fun and the boys are always up for a challenge.”
Last weekend, the Reds clinched a berth in the provincials with a third place finish at the Island tournament in Duncan, beating Victoria 14–5 for the third and final spot to head to the provincials in Mission this weekend.
“It was our best tournament defensively,” McGorman said. “I can count the errors we had all tournament on one hand, so that’s huge for us.”
“We had great games from all of our boys, it’s hard to pinpoint any standouts because everyone took a turn stepping up and delivering for us.”
