Peewee AA Braves win gold at Baseball Alberta Provincials

The Red Deer Peewee AA2 Braves were golden boys in Fort McMurray on the weekend.

Red Deer earned a provincial title in Fort McMurray, capturing gold with a come-from-behind 12-9 win over the host Oil Giants at the Baseball Alberta Tier VII Provincials.

“That was probably our best game that we played all year,” said Braves head coach Chad Robinson.

“We were losing going into the bottom of the sixth. We were down 7-3 going into the sixth and we scored nine runs… we were the comeback kids. Two games for sure, the gold medal and the first game were comebacks.”

Keenan Crozman was clutch on the mound pitching six solid innings in the final and Troy Robinson was three-for-three with three RBI and two runs scored.

Red Deer went 3-1 in round robin to advance to the final. They beat the previously undefeated Oil Giants 21-8 in the final game of round robin to set up the rematch in the gold medal game.

The Braves winning roster included Taylor Reynolds, Jayden Lachman, Declan Andersen, Ethan Dixon, Kristopher Karol, Crozman, Brian Robinson, Caelan Empey, Rhett Becher, Jackson Darcy, Troy Robinson and Brendan Meszaros.

The Peewee AA1 Braves were also champs on the weekend, earning the Tier IV title in Bonnyville. They beat the Edmonton Padres in the final.

Their roster included Brady Leroux, Connor Berglund, Gavin Nelson, Griffin Slywka, Hunter Lewis, Julian Galenza, Kieran Peterson, Kurtis Anderson, Mason Hammerback, Ryker Laybourne, Treysen Miller and Tristen Buckley.
