The Airdrie Junior A’s baseball team won a tournament in Medicine Hat three weeks ago and hopes to turn that success into a playoff run beginning June 13.
“We played two round-robin games and the final and won all three games fairly handily,” said manager Tim Kehoe.
The team, consisting of 13- and 14-year-old players, is currently tied for second place in Tier 1 of District 3 Little League. Airdrie plays against Bow Ridge, Centennial and North West Calgary.
The playoff format will see the A’s play a semi-final game, June 13. With a win, the A’s will move on to the best of three championship series.
