The Trail AA Orioles and AM Ford Senior Orioles are in action this weekend.
The AA O’s will host Colville today at Butler Park at 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. After coming off a pair of convincing 10-0 wins over Lewis and Clark on the weekend the AA Orioles will likely face a stiffer test in the 2-1-1 Colville team.
They will be in action again on Tuesday and the competition won’t get any easier, as the Orioles will host the 6-1-1 Gonzaga Prep 2 Blues at Butler Park with games going at 1 and 3:30 p.m.
The unbeaten 2-0 AA Orioles currently stand atop the National AA division of the Washington State American Legion baseball league.
AM Ford Orioles
Meanwhile the AM Ford Orioles will be in Kelowa for the Blast Tournament looking to take home some cool, hard cash. Twelve teams will compete for $10,000 worth of prize money at Elks and Boucherie Stadiums in Kelowna.
The Orioles will play in a pool with the Coquitlam Angels, Calgary Diamondbacks, and the Okanagan Athletics, a highschool baseball team that plays in the B.C. Premier Baseball League. The host Kelowna Jays play in a pool with the Snoqhalmie Hurricanes, Prince George Grays, and Parkland White Sox from Edmonton. The BC champion Kamloops Sun Devils will face the Burnaby Bulldogs, VIBI Muckers from Nanaimo, and Seattle’s Highline Bears.
The Orioles play back-to-back matches against the Athletics at noon today, then the Diamondbacks at 2:30 p.m. at Boucherie Stadium. They finish the round robin Saturday at 8 a.m. against Coquitlam. The playoff round for the top six teams begins Saturday night at 6 p.m.
