After a hosting a Baseball Manitoba provincial championship without a hitch last August, the community of La Broquerie is stepping it up a few notches this August as they are preparing to host three divisions of the Western Canadian Baseball Association championships.

Fifteen teams in all will be competing in the Western Canada AA Baseball Championships, which will be held Aug. 17-19 at La Broquerie.

Teams will be competing in the 13U, 15U and 18U divisions.

Each of the divisions will have five teams, including representatives from the four western provinces as well as the host team from Carillon.

Three diamonds will be utilized at La Broquerie throughout the three days, beginning Friday at 9:00 a.m., culminating in the championship games late Sunday afternoon.

The 15U Manitoba reps are from Souris while both the 13U and 18U Manitoba reps are from Portage.

In the 13U division, Carillon will open play Friday at 11:45 a.m. vs. Manitoba, followed by a 5:45 p.m. tilt vs. B.C. Carillon will complete their round robin taking on Alberta Saturday at 11:45 a.m. and then Saskatchewan Sunday at 9:00 a.m.

In the 15U division, Carillon opens play Friday at 11:45 a.m. vs. B.C., then will play two games on Saturday as they face Manitoba at 9:00 a.m. and Alberta at 5:15 p.m., completing their round robin Sunday at 11:45 a.m. vs. Saskatchewan.

And lastly in the 18U division, host Carillon will first take to the field Friday at 9:00 a.m. vs. Saskatchewan and then 5:45 p.m. vs. Alberta. On Saturday they will clash with Manitoba at 2:30 p.m. and then Sunday will finish off against B.C. at 11:45 a.m.

Host committee chair Candace Morrow says they have about 25 volunteers in place for the event, but are still looking for more volunteers that can assist in areas like scorekeeping, pitch counters and at the gate. Anyone interested can email her at CMorrow@Ihblawyers.com.

Single day passes will be available at the gate for $10. An adult tournament pass is $25 and a family tournament pass is $50.
