The White Rock All Stars 12-and-under team celebrates their provincial championship win at Vancouver's South Memorial Park.

White Rock Little Leaguers undefeated and bound for Ottawa

Win over New Westminster clinches provincials and a trip to the nationals for the 12-and-under squad

The White Rock All Stars have punched their ticket to Ottawa and a place in the Little League Canadian Nationals.

The undefeated 12-and-under team kept their season’s record intact with a 7-1 win over second-place New Westminster, Monday evening at Vancouver’s South Memorial Park.

The convincing victory sends the White Rock South Surrey Baseball Association squad to the nationals, which run Aug. 6-16, with the winner of that contest earning the right to compete in the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa.

“It was a pretty tight game, despite what the score was,” said Ed Bak, father of No. 6 Darius – who pitched the winning game – adding that it was a contest characterized by a lot of base hits and no home runs for either team.

“In the first inning, New West was up to bat first. At one point they had bases loaded with nobody out – it was looking pretty dicey.”

 

The All Stars have made it to Williamsport before – in 2007 and 2008 – although the world title eluded them both times. The team returned to the nationals in Nova Scotia in 2013, only to fall to Ontario, one game shy of making the World Series.
