Summer of dreams

Meghan Cameron and the girls Alberta peewee baseball team won gold at the Western Canada championships.

Meghan Cameron recently won a gold medal with the Alberta peewee girls baseball team.

Meghan Cameron and the girls Alberta peewee baseball team won gold at the Western Canada championships.

Cameron hit a grand slam in the second inning, propelling team Alberta to a 6-1 lead — and they never looked back.

She had tried out for team Alberta in July and made the cut out of 50 girls.

Cameron plays with Rimbey Minor Ball during the season but has been asked to play in the fall league in Edmonton.

Her dad and mom, Dean and Janice Cameron, are proud of her dedication to the sport she loves.

Baseball is their family passion.

In addition to her great experience, Cameron was the bat girl for team Venezuela at the Women’s World Cup of Baseball in Edmonton.

She was excited to be chosen to represent Canada at Telus Field during the tournament. She practiced with the team, went to games, was in the dugout and attended extra off-field dinners and functions with them.

The language barrier was interesting but they used a lot of hand signals to talk to each other.

‘The Venezuelan team is very nice and friendly, and loud on the field. They’re very vocal when they play baseball, a lot louder than in Canada, which makes it interesting as well to listen to them,” Cameron said.
