Peewees play home opener at SEAPARC diamond

The Sooke Peewees hardball team had their first game at the SEAPARC arena last weekend.

The Triangle / Sooke Peewee and Mosquito baseball teams were at it again this weekend, having their first game at their SEAPARC home field this past Saturday.

The rain clouds parted exactly at game time and the huge crowd assembled for this rather- historic event; the spectators enjoyed a festive atmosphere by watching great baseball, basking in the sun, and of course, complemented by the traditional barbequed hot dogs.

The Sooke Peewees had a thrilling nail-biter with their JDF opponents going well over two hours in length.

At the end of the back and forth battle, JDF came away with a narrow victory.

Solid defensive plays by Josh Heslop, Chris Piatkowski, Beau Hicks and Connor North kept the game close and a line drive snagged by Tyson Wilkinson brought the crowd to their feet.

The Sooke Mosquitos lost their game to their JDF opponents experiencing some powerful pitching from the JDF team. Sooke slugger Burney Pedneault blasted a beauty into center field to the delight of the Sooke fans.

Sooke residents Dave Meek, Chris Cox and son Brad Cox have umpired the Sooke games to this point.

The Sooke Mosquitos will play their next SEAPARC home double header this coming Saturday at  11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

The Peewees take to the field at 4 p.m.

There is, however, a serious shortage of umpires – any parent, baseball player or retiree wanting to help the Sooke kids and be part of a great game can take a one-day course and have an incredibly rewarding experience.

Anyone interested  should contact Dave Meek 250-208-8022.
