Schroder joins Team BC at 16U Nationals

15-year-old Allison Schroder joined Team BC after playing with the National Women’s Team last week

Fruitvale’s Allison Schroder joined Team BC 16U girls squad in Vaughan, Ont. for the 16U Canadian Invitational baseball championship. The 15-year-old shortstop/pitcher joined the team after playing for the National Women’s Program in a tournament against Team USA in Washington last week.

Fruitvale’s Allison Schroder joined Team BC on Thursday, as the largest field in its history convened at the Vaughan Grove Sports Complex in Vaughan, Ont. this week for the Canadian 16U Girls Baseball Championship.

For the first time in its history the national tournament will see representation from nine provinces joining the host team.

Defending champion Ontario will look to capture a record sixth gold medal at the event but will be in tough against familiar foes from Québec, BC, Manitoba, Alberta and Nova Scotia – all of whom have medaled in the past five years. For the first time in event history, Prince Edward Island will send a team.

Team BC fell to Team Quebec on Thursday afternoon 5-2 with Schroder getting the start on the mound. She scored the opening run after singling to lead off in the first, but gave up five runs (two earned), on four hits, four walks and nine strike outs.

BC plays Manitoba today at noon and the host team at 6 p.m., before wrapping up the round robin on Saturday against Saskatchewan. Go to for more info.

Schroder just finished playing with the Women’s National Team in the development series between Baseball Canada’s Women’s National Team Program and USA Baseball’s Women’s National Team Development Program in Washington, D.C.

The series concluded with the US taking both ends of a split-squad doubleheader at the Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Development Complex.

The seven-game series finished with both teams going 3-3-1.

In the final match for Schroder’s Canada Maple team, the USA Stripes broke a 4-4 tie with two runs in the third before scoring five in the fourth to eventually come away with an 11-5 win.

Schroder had a solid game at second base going 2-for-4 at the plate, while designated hitter Kate Psota also enjoyed a 2-for-4 game, that included a double and two RBIs. Emma March of Vancouver smacked a pair of doubles and scored twice.

On the mound, Mena Florio (Vaughan, ON) tossed two scoreless innings allowing just one hit and one walk, while striking out two batters.

In the other match the USA Stars downed the Canada Leaf 9-3.

The Women’s National Team Program will now set their sights on preparations for the 2018 WBSC Women’s Baseball World Cup.
