Baseball is coming to Sooke

A new division of baseball will see more local kids on the ball diamonds

Over the past year, Sooke resident David Meek has been meeting with the Triangle Baseball Association in the hopes of expanding the league to Sooke. Currently there are upwards of 70 Sooke children travelling to Langford to play baseball.

This week, the Triangle Baseball Association confirmed that a new division will be established for the 2015 season called the Triangle-Sooke Baseball. In the first year two teams Mosquito age 10-11, and Pee Wee age 12-13, will play using SEAPARC’s Stan Jones as their home field. It is hoped that future development of the Triangle-Sooke league will cover all age groups .

Registration will take place in January and at this point David Meek will be organizing the Mosquito team and Mike Hicks will be organizing the Pee Wee team. Coaches, managers, umpires and volunteers will be needed to start this organization and both Meek and Hicks are counting on strong support from  the baseball community.

Interested volunteers and players can contact Meek ( 778 – 425 – 4200) or Hicks ( 250-216-5802)  or e-mail at SookeBaseball@gmail.com.
