Ice Breaker Kicks off Slo-Pitch Season

The Summer 2015 Slo Pitch League began with a kick-off tournament May 8

The Port Hardy Slo Pitch League kicked off its season with the annual Ice Breaker Tournament May 8 to May 10 at Storey’s Beach. “This tournament was a skins format on Sunday for playoffs. Each inning was worth money and to win the inning you had to get more runs than the other team and to win the game you had to win a minimum of four skins,” said Organizer Leigh Deans.

This year, there are 18 teams in the mixed slo pitch league, Deans said.

Teams are mainly from Port Hardy with a few from Quatsino and Fort Rupert. Teams play Monday and Thursday nights at 7 p.m. However, once the days are a little longer they will play games at 6:30 p.m. and at 8 p.m. at the diamonds at Storey’s Beach. The next tournament will be the Father’s Day Classic June 20-21. If anyone is looking to join a team, they can contact David Deans at North Star Cycle and Sports at 250-949-7221 or Leigh Deans at 250-230-8409. The results of the tournament were as follows.
