The wins just keep coming for the Minor PeeWee Aurora-King Jays.
The AAA squad’s latest accomplishment is a championship win at the annual Brampton Minor Baseball tournament, rallying from an opening day loss to trounce their opponents on Saturday and Sunday.
Stung by Scarborough 6 – 5 on Friday, the Jays returned with a 9 – 5 win over the Brampton Royals and an 11 – 1 beating of the Waterloo Tigers, advancing to Sunday’s semifinal against the Richmond Hill Phoenix.
There the Jays put up a massive 17 runs to move on to the afternoon’s final, where they met Scarborough in a winner-take-all rematch.
Aurora-King swiftly took the game and the championship by a score of 9 – 2.
No strangers to gold medal performances, the Jays won the Mosquito Newmarket Silver Bat Championship in 2016, as well as the Mosquito Aurora tournament, the Mosquito YSBA Championship, and the OBA Mosquito Championship.
They were also finalists in the Richmond Hill Green and Gold AAA Championship.
Playing through a particularly rainy season, the Jays have managed a 6-1-1 record in eight regular season YSBA games so far.
Congratulations to head coach Jordan Keon, assistant coaches Greg Davison, David Walker, and Ryan Windle, and players Nichoals Burdo, Luke Davison, Ryley Emery, Fionn Keon, Nathan Lambert, William McKenzie, Owen Norris, Tyler Pridham, Finn Walker, and Nathan Windle.
