Mariners launch bantam teams

The Henderson Park-based ball club is introducing a bantam-age squad that will compete in an elite provincial league

Thirteen and 14-year-old baseball players looking to test their skills at a higher level are invited to try out for a new team aiming to continue the tradition built by the Victoria Mariners Premier Baseball League program.

The Henderson Park-based Mariners are introducing a bantam-age squad that will compete in an elite provincial league. The idea is to provide the same level of coaching, development and competition as those found at the senior and junior Premier levels, as a way to prepare players.

The program began summer assessments and an introduction to fall ball last weekend. Workouts continue this Saturday (Aug. 29) and Sept. 5 from 9:45 a.m. to noon at Layritz Field.
