The home team won in a fastball tournament that featured elite-level talent.
The Wheatsheaf Fastball Club won the Art and Marion Hutt Memorial Fastpitch Tournament last weekend at the Wheatsheaf sports fields in Cedar.
The Wheaties beat the Sooke Hammers in Sunday’s final, 7-3.
Chris McCormick was the winning pitcher, with Blake Hunter leading the offence going 3-for-4 with a home run and a double. Todd Belton was 2-for-4.
The tourney featured international players including eight current Team Canada members – Hunter, Derek Mayson, Bryan Abrey, Kris Waluska, Kyle Cowick, Patrick Burns, Devon McCullough and Scott Lieph – slated to be part of upcoming world championships in Prague.
Teams came from up and down the Island, the Fraser Valley and the Sunshine Coast.
