Team BC 18U College Prep have a successful Day 1 of the Tournament!!

Team BC came out swinging in our first game of the 18U College Showcase Tournament in New Jersey. Diamond Nation ball park is a great facility and the boys were excited to be part of this elite showcase tournament. We knew coming in the competition would be stiff, but our boys have battled through many tough games to get them to this point. After all, we are provincial champions! We had every confidence in our Team BC boys!

Carter Harbut was starting pitcher and pitched another complete shut out game. Did we expect anything less? Our offence came through and we ultimately beat the Staten Island Orioles 9 0 in six innings. Highlights: Gernon 2RBI in-the-park home run; Merritt 2RBI triple; Dykstra double; singles by Carpenter, Moorman; single bunts by King and Ray. All in all our boys came through and showed these teams that we belong in this competition!

Game 2 followed shortly thereafter against the FAA Pheonix. Iversen pitched 6 innings, allowing 3 runs. Ray came in to close: 4 batters, 2 strike outs with the game ending on a great defensive play from Hall (second base) and Merritt (short stop) in the top of 7th. Offensively, Gernon 2 for 3; Pankratz 2 for 3 and singles by Dykstra and Carpenter.

We are so proud of our boys and today’s success! We celebrated with a meal at Sonic!

Game 3 scheduled for Tues at 2:15 pm against All Out Underclass who also finished 2 and 0 today.

Keep up the great work Team BC!!

It was a full day in New York on day one of team BC s time in New Jersey. We took The Path train from Hoboken to New York so the boys had their first experience with the subway system. We used it well all day long. First stop was the Staten Island Ferry to see the Statue of Liberty. Then off to the 911 memorial and ground zero. It was a rather emotional time as we remembered the events of 911. Then the team crossed the Brooklyn bridge and ultimately our evening ending in Times Square with all the hussle and bussle of that place on a weekend night. The boys shopped, ate and took in the sites. It was an awesome day of a great opportunity to see a city many will likely not see again!

Day 2 begins our tournament. The boys play two games at 430 and 630 Monday

Good luck Team BC!!

Jay Taylor took the loss allowing 3 earned runs.

It was a great experience for our program and the boys were a little shell shocked in the first couple of games. Flight, excitement I believe all played a part in our slow start. It gave us a great idea where our program needs to go in the coming years.

Team BC took a tour of Fenway Park and took in a Pawtuckets Red Sox AAA game.

Thank you BC Baseball and Ray Wearing for giving us this opportunity.
