Royals season over, but still playing

Parksville Royals are headed to Yorkton, Saskatchewan to represent this province

Hayden Scheck and the Quality Foods Parksville Royals are taking a quick break

With the BCPBL season all wrapped up, the Quality Foods Parksville Royals have transformed to represent British Columbia at the Western Canadian Championships in Yorkton, Saskatchewan later this month.

Playing in the tournament as a U-18 team, the Royals will see all of their players from their team this season taking part in the tournament plus the addition of Nanaimo Pirates catcher and former Royal Chris Vlaj.

“As of right now we’ve got 17 players,” Royals head coach Dave Wallace said. “We picked up Chris, who is a catcher and can play in the infield as well, so he’ll help us out where we need it.”

“We’re not sure if we’ll be able to get one more player or not, if we did we’re hoping to pick up a pitcher, but we’ll see what happens over these next two weeks.”

Once the Royals return from playing as Team B.C. in Saskatchewan, it’s straight into the Fall Ball league, which kicks off on August 26 and runs through to October.

The Royals will have a good mixture of players looking to return next season and players looking to earn a future roster spot with the Royals.
