Team Alberta suffered a quick exit at the senior men’s nationals this weekend.
The Sherwood Park Athletics, representing the province at the Baseball Canada Senior Men’s Nationals in Miramichi, New Brunswick were eliminated on Saturday by the runs formula.
They finished round robin play 2-2, and with plus-four run differential but that wasn’t enough to crack the top three and move on.
3-2 loss to the @SydSooners. Finish the tournament at 2-2 in a 3 way tie for the playoff spots but lose out on the run formula. Thanks to all our fans, wives, gfs and significant others for supporting us. Good season comes up short.
