Yew Bat tourney goes this weekend

10th annual Investors Group-sponsored men's baseball event starts Friday

Bill Moore Memorial Park in Courtenay is once again the host field for the 10th annual Investors Group Yew Bat Masters Baseball Tournament.

Beginning Friday at 5 p.m., eight teams will battle for the historic Yew Bat trophy.  Visiting teams from Victoria, Burnaby and Sointula, and five teams from the Komoux Masters Real Baseball League here in town, will be in the race for bragging rights.

There will be four teams in the 35+ division (Victoria, Brian McLean Yankees, Fisher Realty Blue Jays, and Happy’s Source for Sports Indians) and four in the 45+ division (Burnaby Buzzards, Sointula, Williams Construction Nationals, and Courtenay Plumbing Twins).

On Friday at 5 p.m., the Buzzards take on the Nationals and Blue Jays take flight against the Yankees. At 7:30 p.m., Sointula and the Twins face off, as well as Victoria against the Indians.

Saturday will see two games in each time slot – 9 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 2 p.m., and 5:30 p.m.  Semifinals go Sunday at 9 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. and the finals at 2 p.m.

Drop by Bill Moore park (next to the lawn bowling club on Kilpatrick) for some sun, a couple of cool beverages, and some exciting baseball as the-somewhat-young and not-so-young hit the diamonds.
