 Sooke Peewee baseball starts first-ever season

A new and exciting baseball/hardball season begins in Sooke.

The new Sooke peewee baseball team, Triangle Sooke, took to the field for their first away game on Thursday evening against their Juan de Fuca counterparts.

The team is coached by Andy Piatkowski, managed by Mike Hicks and sponsored by Sooke Home Hardware. The historic first game started with Tait Bishop ripping a drive into left field.  This was followed with great hits and fielding from infielders Chris Piatkowski, Beau Hicks, Connor North, and Tyler Fogerty.

Outfielders Tyson Wilkinson, James Lewers, Josh Heslop and Malcolm Issac were kept busy keeping the powerful JDF sluggers to one base hits. They needed all their fielding and throwing skills to keep the score close.

Pitchers Connor (Shark) Bainbridge, Owen Phipps and Storm Spackman where spectular in their first performance drawing constant cheers from the Sooke fans. After four innings, the Juan de Fuca team emerged the victor.

The Sooke peewees were grinning from ear to ear knowing they had given their best, they had almost too much fun and are now part of an 18 team league.

The first Sooke home games will be played on Fred Milne # 3 field, Saturday April 18.

The Sooke Mosquito team will play at 11 a.m.  and the Sooke Peewees will play at 2 p.m.

Mayor Maja Tait will be throwing out the first pitch to celebrate the new U13 and U11 Sooke franchise teams of the Triangle Athletic Association at 2 p.m. on the same day.
