PHOTOS: Tri County Rangers claim top spots at U-11 A Tier 2 provincials

WINDSOR JUNCTION: In what was a fitting end to the U-11 A Tier 2 provincials, the two host Tri County Rangers teams met in the championship game at the big field at the Windsor Junction Community Centre.

In the final, Tri County- White beat Tri County-Gibson 7-1 in a thrilling game that featured many local Fall River and LWF baseball-area players on both sides.

At the opening ceremonies on Aug. 27, a special, well-known guest was on hand to throw out the opening pitch.

N.S. Chief medical officer of health Dr. Robert Strang, who was given an ovation by the kids and parents, got the championship underway.

Here are some photos that we snapped during the games at the WJCC when we attended:
