Six make cut for U12 World Series

Half dozen White Rock and Cloverdale players named to roster for Continental Amateur Baseball Association World Series.

Following tryout camps throughout the province earlier this spring, six local youth baseball players have made the cut with Team BC for the upcoming Continental Amateur Baseball Association U12 World Series.

Making the final roster were Cloverdale Minor Baseball Association players Walter Dingwall, Damiano Palmegiani and Liam Vulcano, while the White Rock-South Surrey Baseball Association will be represented by Michael Dowhaniuk, Stephen Lin and Jackson Hogg.

One other player, WRSSBA’s Brett Jackson, is on the team’s alternates list.

The CABA World Series is set for July 3-8 in Mason, Ohio, and Team BC will enter the event as the defending champions, having won the tournament in 2012.

While in Ohio, the team will also take in a Cincinnati Reds’ baseball game, in addition to participating in other CABA World Series activities.
