The Ladner Red Sox capped a dominating season with a perfect 6-0 run last weekend in Cloverdale to capture B.C. Minor Baseball's Mosquito AAA Tier II Championship.
The golden path was highlighted by an amazing five inning 50 pitch performance by Zakary Zbitnoff in a semifinal encounter Port Coquitlam, sending the team to the championship against Abbotsford. Ladner then rolled to a 10-0 victory, led by the outstanding pitching of starter Matty Wilkinson, and great defence and MVP closing pitching from Branden Bach.
Including qualifying play, the Red Sox went 14-0 during the all-star season. A banner will be raised at Bell Park next spring to recognize the accomplishment.
Coached by Paul Bach, Dan Hawksworth and Bill Zbitnoff, the Red Sox roster also includes: Jared Romaniuk, James McNeill, Sam MacFarlane, Jordan Hawksworth, Jaicob Hastings, Jakob Wegner, Jordan Sanders, Braedy Euerby and Reid Rogers.
