“The guys played great ball all weekend and we had a double life in the ‘A’ side final but the Northeast team had enough arms and some timely hitting to beat us twice,” reported Oriole team member Chris Wyatt. “We went 3-0 and beat Northeast to get to the A final and they came up the B-side and beat us twice.”

Wyatt said while the Orioles came up a little short, it was still a great weekend.

“Hudson Bay were great hosts and even after heavy rains before the tournament had the diamonds in great shape,” he said.
