Minor ball team travels

The Port Hardy Minor Ball team went to Campbell River recently for two games

Eleven children from Port Hardy Minor Ball travelled to Campbell River recently to play two exhibition games against Campbell River.

The Port Hardy squad played against the Mets and the Red Sox.

The boys have played together for a couple years, but as there are no other teams to play against in the North Island they haven’t been able to test their skills until now.

Port Hardy played two very close games losing by only a few runs in the bottom of the last inning. The first game they went into the bottom of the final inning with a tie and the second game they went into the bottom of the final inning with a one-run advantage.

The boys were presented with a ball cap and baseball from the vice president and head coach from Campbell River Minor Baseball for their amazing efforts. Most importantly, the group had a ton of fun and they are really looking forward to regular games in Campbell River next year as they have been invited into their regular league game schedule.

This will allow Port Hardy to travel to Campbell River and play a couple games every other Saturday if they choose to do so.
