The Pasadena Pirates lost all four round-robin games as Baseball Newfoundland and Labrador’s representative at the 2017 Baseball Atlantic Under-11 boys baseball championship held in Baddeck, N.S., over the weekend.
The Pirates opened the tournament with a 1-0 heartbreaker loss to the host Tri-County Rangers before being hammered 16-5 by Prince Edward Island, who went on to collect silver after being beaten handily 15-0 by the Nova Scotia provincial representatives in the gold-medal showdown Sunday afternoon.
The Pirates suffered a heartbreaking loss against New Brunswick, losing 5-4 with the winning run coming on a dropped fly ball on the infield in the sixth inning.
They wrapped up the tournament with a 15-0 loss to a talented Nova Scotia team that claimed bragging rights to gold when the dust was settled.
The Pirates, with a perfect 4-0 round-robin record, earned the right to represent the province on the Atlantic stage by defeating the Gander Pilots 5-3 in the gold-medal showdown at the provincial AA mosquito baseball tournament hosted by the Pirates last month.
