Dunbar 8’s Tournament Team

For the first time Dunbar put together a nice group of 8 year old’s that were available in the post season to play in an invitational tournament in White Rock in early July. It was a great experience for the kids to attend and play in a well run tournament. The learning curve was steep as our league rules were quite different than tournament rules but the kids picked it up after two games. The highlight for the kids and parents was a win against a well matched White Rock team that ended with Dunbar preserving a win by one run with a perfectly executed relay from the fence to home to tag out the potential tying run at the plate. The crowd went wild and the kids celebrated the joy that comes from executing what you practice. We hope this becomes a tradition at Dunbar and future Minor B’s enjoy the same experience of summer baseball.
