PBSA teams score titles

record setting season for the Peninsula Baseball & Softball Association

The Peninsula Red Dogs tadpole baseball team poses for a photo during the tournament they hosted at Rotary Park this past weekend.

It’s been a record setting season for the Peninsula Baseball & Softball Association.

“Our boys took a club record three out of five Greater Victoria titles in 2012,” said PBSA president Dave Swinton.

The three titles came at mosquito, bantam AA and midget AA levels.

The association’s season concluded this past weekend at Rotary Park with 13 teams of tadpole baseball players from Campbell River south descending on the Peninsula for a three day tournament.

Swinton said the Peninsula team had a terrific tournament going 2-2, but just missed out on advancing to the medal round. On Sunday, July 8, Triangle from the West Shore knocked out Nanaimo in the final to take the crown in the tournament.

“To see Rotary Park so full with 156 ball players and their families for three days of terrific ball was fantastic,” said Swinton.

In the spring, PBSA plays interlocking baseball in the Greater Victoria Baseball Association where there are five divisional championships up for grabs each year.
