Agassiz A’s Peewee baseball team finishes regular season strong

First season for Agassiz team finishes with 15 wins and one loss

The regular spring season for the Pee Wee baseball team ended last Saturday, June 6. Coach Trevor McGuire reports the team did exceptionally well, placing as number one seed for the playoffs that start tomorrow, June 12.

The team’s record was 15 wins and one loss.

“It has been a privilege to coach the youth in Agassi. They have come a long way,” states McGuire.

He and fellow coach Les Szabo appreciate the support of parents who have helped to create a great learning environment for local kids.

One of the highlights of the season was when they came second overall at the Vancouver Presidents’ Cup tournament two weeks ago.

“Some of the best teams from across BC were present and we opened a lot of eyes in the baseball world to Agassiz baseball,” says McGuire. “Agassiz Baseball has been able to bring parents and youth of Agassiz together and show what can be accomplished for all age groups.”

It was a lot of work for organizers to set up a baseball league in Agassiz for this season. Volunteers wanted to find a way to keep kids in Agassiz instead of having to drive elsewhere for team practices and all games. McGuire says they are grateful for some Chilliwack businesses who stepped up to help support the Agassiz A’s.

“This is only the beginning,” concludes McGuire.
