Baseball PEI is Looking for Past Provincial Champions

03/26/2020, 3:15pm ADT
By Baseball PEI

Baseball PEI is looking for your help!

From the period of 2013-2019, Baseball PEI has a record of all Provincial Champions (and the vast majority of medalists at either Baseball Atlantic or Baseball Canada National 13U Atlantic Championships). However, our records before 2013 aren’t complete and we don’t know the vast majority of Provincial Champions before 2013.

Currently, the list of Provincial Champions of which we are aware can be found at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1T2bIWdH2-iD16MwYTREjjMKG9mi6tQD07kMMt_MDbD4/edit#gid=0. Please note that any teams that were medalists at Atlantic Championships are denoted.

If you know who the Provincial Champion is in a particular category before 2013, please email Randy at baseball@sportpei.pe.ca with the team name, age and skill category, and the coach of the team. As well, if there are any errors on this list, or teams listed that won a medal at an Atlantic Championship and that isn’t denoted, please email Randy as well.

Your help in assisting with us remembering our Provincial Champions is very much appreciated!
