Sooke Triangle Peewees player “Storm” Spackman eagerly swings at the ball

New baseball team plays first game in Sooke

A summary from last week's baseball game at the Fred Milne sports park.

The new Sooke Triangle teams played their first home games at the Fred Milne baseball diamond on Saturday.

Mayor Maja Tait threw out the first pitch in both games  to the delight of the many Sooke fans assembled at Fred Milne Field.

The first home game was a blow-out success, complemented by hot dogs and concession by Kathy Hicks and Derrick Bishop, as well as a beautiful sunny day.

The Sooke Mosquitos division is managed by Dave Meek and coached by  Kris Bocci and assistant coaches Wayne Robinson and Rick Snyder.

Taking to the field on the first game against their Juan de Fuca opponents, Sooke pitchers Cameron Bocci, Kyran Rose, Chandler Alexander, Risto Ringma and Alex Jodoin  were outstanding throughout the six inning game.

Burney Pedneault, Eric Neilson, Tyson Robinson, Faber Mossey, Daniel Wylie and Ryder McDonald were the backbone of the infield and outfield making spectacular plays throughout the game and holding the score to 15-5.

Players Conner Keys and Bennet Garrat were missing from the line-up.

The Sooke Peewees playing Oak Bay Carnavaron were awarded their first win by default as Oak Bay failed to field a full roster of nine players.

With the help of Sooke’s full roster of 12 players, the game went a full seven innings and was a thrilling match enjoyed by many fans.

Shark Bainbridge, Chris Piatkowski and Storm Spackman provided strong pitching with Piatkowski’s exceptional speed and delivery sending shivers through the Carnavaron dug-out.

Sooke slugger Tyler Fogarty nearly cleared the fence with a huge shot to center field driving home two runs.

The next games will be played this  Saturday, April 25 at the Seaparc field.

Peewees will play the first game at 2 p.m. with Mosquitos taking to the field at 5 p.m.
