ENFIELD: The Summerside Chevys didn’t mind playing twice on Championship Sunday at the U15 AAA Atlantic Baseball championships, held Sept 17-19 at the Enfield Legion.

Corridor Minor Baseball’s East Hants Nationals were the host team for the event, with many parents pitching in to organize the event over the past five weeks. It would not have been possible without the great support from the community, such as major sponsorships from local businesses.

The Chevy’s played on Sunday morning against the Fredericton Royals, besting them in an exciting contest to move to the championship and face the rested St. John’s Capitals.

In the final Summerside’s offensive attack kept the momentum going, and they took home the championship banner with the win over the Caps.

East Hants and Dartmouth rounded out the standings for the five team championship.
