15U AA Championship goes to Tri City Thunder in an extra inning thriller

Chilliwack was the site for a great final battle between the Prince George Knights and Tri City Thunder for a berth in the 15U AA Westerns and a trip to La Broquerie, Manitoba as Team BC.

Tied 1-1 after 7 complete innings, Tri City lead off the 8th inning with a base hit.  A sacrifice bunt moved the runner to 2nd base and a base hit brought up a play at the plate as the runner tried to score.  It appeared as though Prince George threw out the runner at home, however when the dust settled the catcher had dropped the ball and score what turned out to be the winning run and sent Tri City through to the Western Canadaian Championships.

Baseball BC expresses its gratitude to Chilliwack Minor Baseball for running a well-organized event and thank you to all the teams and volunteers who participated.
