Blaze fielding bantam prep team

Langley baseball program accepting registration for players between ages of 12 and 14

The Langley Blaze are forming a bantam AAA team for baseball players between the ages of 12 and 14.

The focus will be on skill development and helping the players transition to the B.C. Junior (U16) Premier Baseball League and the B.C. Premier (U18) Baseball League.

The schedule will include games against local PBL bantam AAA prep teams, teams in northern Washington state, and other clubs, as well as tournaments.

There will also be a trip in early spring to Las Vegas for the Red, White and Blue Premier tournament.

Russell Kennedy, who has four years of U.S. college experience, will be the head coach, with other members of the Blaze coaching staff assisting. Games and practices will be at McLeod Park with the fall program beginning Sept. 1 and then later shifting to the Blaze’s indoor training facility.

Players from Langley, North Langley, Cloverdale, Aldergrove and Maple Ridge are welcome. Contact langleyblaze@yahoo.com.
