Meghan Cameron, a 14-year-old baseball player from Rimbey represented Central Alberta by playing on Team Alberta Women’s team, Team Alberta Bantam Team and Confederation Park, an all-boys team in Edmonton.

Meghan started her year of baseball playing in the Central Alberta League with the local Rimbey Midget team. The Midgets placed third in league play.

On weekends she played with an all-women’s team in Edmonton under Baseball Alberta. The team played against all boys’ teams.

Following league play Meghan was chosen to play as the starting catcher with Confederation Park in Little League Western Prairies finals. It was a great experience and the team brought home a gold medal.

Following that tournament Meghan was asked to play on the Team Alberta Women’s Team in Surrey, B.C. in nationals.

This, too, was a great experience as she played with and against some Team Canada women in the tournament.

She was the youngest player there.

Once again the team Meghan played for was fortunate enough to bring home a gold medal. Team Alberta had never won the national event so that made it even more special.

And to cap off the year, Meghan played for Team Alberta Bantam team in Quebec.

Meghan finished in the top 10 in batting with a .538 batting average and 7 RBI; good for third overall.

Out of nine provinces the team ended winning the consolation final.
