Team BC 15U Claims Silver at Game Day USA National Championships
Team BC 15U represented by the Abbotsford Angels AAA team claimed silver today in the championship game at the 2015 Game Day USA 15U National Championship Tournament in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Following an impressive record of 4-0 in pool play, which included victories over Bigler Big Time 15U, Slammers Baseball 15U, the Illinois Indians and Peak Performance Select 15U , Team BC entered championship Sunday as the number 1 seed. The day started off with a 4-1 victory over the Illinois Indians followed by a hard fought 4-3 win over the Illinois Celtics. That set up the championship tilt against the powerful Wisconsin Panthers, who had also gone 4-0 in pool play and were the number 2 seed. The gold medal game saw the Panthers slowly build up a 6 0 lead before Team BC battled back, eventually falling short with a final score of 7-3 in favor of the Panthers. Team BC had chances but were unable to capitalize with big hits at the right time. Overall Team BC had a great week and were fantastic representatives for BC Baseball with the caliber of their play and their sportsmanship.This team has truly paved the way for BC teams to follow both on and off the field in future US National events. The team returns home tomorrow for a quick rest before getting ready to compete in the upcoming BC Baseball 15U (Bantam) AAA Provincial Championship Tournament, July 31 Aug 3, in White Rock, BC.
