It was a decent effort to avoid the catcher, but unfortunately, Jayden Kjenstad was in a pretty good spot to catch Michael Shook in his slide home.

As the government of British Columbia eased COVID-19 restrictions, the games were back on.

It was perfect weather for the Clearwater minor ball U10 team to play some ball Friday evening. Joining them was Barriere’s U10 team at Capostinsky Park. Both teams played well, hitting a few home runs and catching a couple pop flies. At one point, a double play was made between a Clearwater outfielder, the pitcher and first base player. The crowd was just as excited as the players to watch the play unfold.

Clearwater’s pitcher Ezra Mann made at least two pop-fly catches, and he made both look so easy.

The U16 minor ball team, with a couple U12 and U14 players, will be in Barriere July 9 to 11 for provincials.

Last Friday, they joined a few alumni players at Capostinsky Park to home their skills before the upcoming tournament.
