The 2019 minor baseball season has ended with the completion of the final five Baseball Atlantic Championships and the Baseball Canada National 13U Atlantic Championship this past weekend.
In Dartmouth, NS, the Capital District Islanders lost 3-2 in the final – their only loss in the tournament – to the Yarmouth Gateways to claim the silver medal at the 2019 Baseball Canada National 13U Atlantic Championships. This capped off an impressive two-year run for Capital District at this event, after winning gold in 2018. Meanwhile, the Summerside Chevys went 3-0 in the round-robin but lost to Yarmouth in the semifinals and to the Dartmouth Arrows in the bronze medal game to finish fourth. Yasu Hojo of Capital District was awarded the top hitter of the tournament.
