Finals Set for the Midsummer Classic

The Finals of the 2017 Midsummer Classic promises some great contests in all three divisions.

The 10U A Championship goes at 3:00 at Lions Park as the Cloverdale Spurs clash with the White Rock Tritons. The teams met earlier in pool play with Cloverdale edging White Rock 9-7.  White Rock earned their spot in the Final with a solid win over the Coquitlam Athletics. Meanwhile Cloverdale booked their ticket with a dramatic 9-6 victory over the host Abbotsford Angels.  Jack Roberts hit a three run homer in the bottom of the sixth for the walk-off victory.

Centennial Park at 5:00 is the setting for the AAA Tier 2 Final. The North Langley Trappers and Aldergrove return to the Finals in 2017 after the two met in the 2016 Final.  North Langley dispatched the Victoria Eagles and Aldergrove took care of the Abbotsford Angels in the Semis.

A new AAA Tier 1 Champion will take the crown from last year’s winner the Cascade Crush.  The 2017 Championship Final features  Ridge Meadows versus Ladner.  The Royals edged the Chuckers in one Semi, while the Red Sox defeated the Eagles in the other Semi.  First pitch for the Final goes at 5:00 PM at Lions Park.
