The Nanaimo Pirates mosquito AAA all-stars circled the basepaths one last time to wrap up a successful summer.
The boys’ rep baseball team finished fifth at the B.C. Minor Baseball Association’s Tier 1 championships in Richmond on the long weekend, winning two of four games in the round robin.
The mosquito AAA Pirates won the Vancouver Island zone championship the previous weekend in Victoria. At that tourney Nanaimo pounded Campbell River 12-6, beat Victoria 8-2 and then came from behind to beat Duncan 12-9 in an exciting Island final.
