18U D-Backs visit Seattle for Josh Dickerson Tournament
This past weekend, the West Kelowna 18U College Prep D-Backs made the trip to Seattle, WA to participate in the Josh Dickerson Tournament. West Kelowna joined 8 of the Seattle-Area’s premier 18U Baseball Clubs for a weekend showdown in the “Emerald City”. The D-Backs competed alongside teams such as the Narrows Baseball Club, Seattle Stars, Washington Athletics, the Bellevue Boys of Summer, Benz Baseball and 3 teams from Seattle’s Baden Baseball Club.
While the scoresheets didn’t go in favor of West Kelowna over the weekend, the D-Backs fought hard, narrowly losing Game 1 to the Narrows Baseball Club by a score of 1-0. Game 2 saw them lose 9-0 to the “Premier” squad from the Baden-sponsored Seattle club. Game 3 against the Washington A’s ended in a 7-3 loss, followed by a 9-3 Loss to the Baden Red team. In the final game, the D-backs were edged out 8-0 by the Baden Black squad.
Although the D-Backs walked away winless, the team from West Kelowna had an amazing opportunity to be put up to the measuring stick against some of the stiffest competition that Washington state had to offer.
Making the most of their trip, the D-Backs had the opportunity to enjoy the city on Saturday Night, taking in an MLB match-up between the home town Mariners and the 2015 World Series Champion Kansas City Royals which saw the Mariners take the game 6-4.
The D-Backs return to West Kelowna this weekend for a pair of double headers at home, kicking off Saturday against 1-seed Chilliwack Cougars at 1pm & 3:30pm followed on Sunday by games against the Ridge Meadows Royals at 1pm & 3:30pm.
