Dozens of young baseball athletes converged in Rimbey late July to take their place in the Peewee AA 2017 provincial championships.

For the event, held from July 28 to 30 and hosted by the Rimbey Rays, six teams squared off against each other in two pools.

In pool A was the Rimbey Rays, the Fort Saskatchewan Red Sox #2 and the Slave Lake Heat. Pool B consisted of the Lacombe Dodgers, the Southwest Edmonton White Sox and the Red Deer Braves #2.

Also in attendance for the provincial championships was central Alberta country star Gord Bamford, who graced the crowd and team with his rendition of O’ Canada during the opening ceremonies on July 28.

The results of the provincials were not yet posted as of Aug. 1.

Updates will be made as more information becomes available.

Update:

The Rimbey Rays were named champions, having beaten out the Southwest Edmonton White Sox in the final game on July 30; 10-0.
