    Just a quick correction in the game between Pasadena and St. John's which finished 18 to 13. Both teams played great and it could have gone either way. Congratulations to the CBN Bulldogs on their gold medal win. Also congratulations to the 3 teams from Pasadena, Grand Falls-Windsor and St. John's. It was a great weekend of female baseball and it was excellent to see it grow from 2 teams last year to 4 teams this year. A big shout out goes to the players, organizers, umpires, officials, volunteers, parents, family and friends who without all of their positive support, encouragement and enthusiasm for all of our girls from across NL, none of this would be possible. And finally a huge THANK YOU to those volunteers who have been tirelessly promoting and building female baseball in our province. Great job to all! Female baseball is here to stay! ‪#‎YouWishYouCouldThrowLikeAGirl‬ Rich Howie Coach, St. John's Capitals PeeWee Girls
