CBN Bulldogs winless at provincial midget playdowns
The Conception Bay North Bulldogs came away winless from the provincial midget AAA baseball championships in Corner Brook on July 24.
The Bulldogs lost all three of its round-robin games, falling 8-3 to the St. John’s Capitals, 11-7 to Grand FallsWindsor and 10-4 to Corner Brook.
Corner Brook defeated St. John’s 2-0 in the championship game, which was played at Jubilee Field, and finished the tournament with an unblemished record.
Members of the Bulldogs include: Jared Adams, Justin Coombs, Matthew Coombs, Brandon Crocker, Jordan Drover, Mitchell Drover, Travis Drover, Tyson Drover, Jacob Lane, Cody Meaney, Zachary Mercer, Zachary Noseworthy, Andrews Parsons, William Rose, Bradley Sparkes, Robert Stockley, manager Cindy Pike, and coaches Scott Mercer and Cody Mercer.

The team is gearing up for its biggest challenge yet — the 2011 midget championships in Regina, Saskatchewan. The Bulldogs won the right to represent this province after winning a national qualifying tournament in St. John’s last fall.
The tournament takes place from Aug. 18-22.
